BBC America’s gripping clone series Orphan Black has been teasing fans with a handful of brief previews, aimed at reminding viewers of one fact: season 3 shall commence shortly. Out of those clips, there has been a deliberate attempt to up viewer curiosity without giving the game away. With the release of this latest one minute clip, there’s finally a chance to sink your teeth into a bit of story.
By far the most revealing trailer, it opens with Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) reconnecting with her genetic identical siblings. The self-appointed leader of the group discovers that Helena – the brilliantly batshit sister – has done a runner. Well, it’s keeping in line with her typically riotous behavior isn’t it? As you may have spotted, the remainder of the sisterhood are also set to return this season with soccer mom, Alison and scientist, Cosima joining in on the action.
Orphan Black returns to BBC America for season 3 on April 18th. You can check out the official synopsis below, and be sure to let us know your thoughts on this latest clip in the comments.
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?
