The first Orphan Black Season 4 spoilers have been unleashed, and here’s the major takeaway: A new adversary will send Sarah in a “horrifying” new direction — fracturing the “sisterhood” in the process.
Per a just-released BBC America press release…
Season 4 of the drama will see leader-of-the-pack, Sarah, reluctantly return home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive and mysterious ally tied to the clone who started it all — Beth Childs. Sarah will follow Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent new enemy, heading in a horrifying new direction. Under constant pressure to protect the sisterhood and keep everyone safe, Sarah’s old habits begin to resurface. As the close-knit sisters are pulled in disparate directions, Sarah finds herself estranged from the loving relationships that changed her for the better.
The BBC bulletin also announced that Canadian actor Joel Thomas Hynes is joining the cast as Dizzy, an edgy, self-reliant hacker who doesn’t conform to group mentality.
Production on Season 4 is currently underway ahead of a Spring 2016 premiere.
