Orphan Black Season 3 Press Release
won’t be coming back until 2015, but production of the BBC America show just began and with that came some interesting details about the series’ third season and it seems like the Clone Club will be going through some difficult times. A press release sates:
“Season 3 plunges the clone sisterhood into unexpected territory with the realization that they’re not alone. Just when they thought they knew their enemies and allies, season three reveals our clones are more vulnerable than ever before. Highly trained, identical male-soldiers raise more questions than answers. Who are these new clones? Who created them? And more importantly, why do they exist? Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena are stronger together than they are apart, but this season will put that bond to the test. Will they forge towards their truth, or fall at the feet of those that seek to control them?
Returning in a lead role is Ari Millen, who plays the newly discovered male clones – Mark, the Prolethean cult follower and Rudy, a prisoner of war. Also back this season is Jordan Gavaris as Sarah’s fiery foster brother Felix, Dylan Bruce as Paul, an army officer working for secret forces in the clone world, Maria Doyle Kennedy as Sarah and Felix’s duplicitous foster mother Mrs. S, Evelyne Brochu as Dyad Scientist and Cosima’s lover Delphine, Kevin Hanchard as Art, a detective caught in the clone trap, Michiel Huisman as Cal, father to Sarah’s daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler) and Zoé De Grand Maison as Gracie, a Prolethean escapee. Additional casting for the series will be announced in the coming weeks.”
Though we weren’t too crazy with the revelation of the male clones in the second season finale, a development so major could potentially pull time and attention from the characters that made the show so irresistible, the press release does emphasize the dynamic between the Clone Club as a central driving force of the series, which is encouraging. We will definitely be watching when Orphan Black
returns, will you?
