‘Orphan Black’ Takes the ‘Final Trip’ With New Photos and Synopses
Plenty of series will have their last bow over the course of 2017, but few sting as much as Orphan Black. The fifth and final season “trip” is almost upon us, and we’ve got the latest trailer, photos and three new episode synopses to prove it.
In addition to the first trailer, BBC-A re-upped an extended sneak peek from Orphan Black Season 5 that debuted a few weeks ago. The below cast photos are entirely new, while you can also read the (spoilery!) synopsis for the June 10 premiere and beyond:

Meanwhile, a recovering Cosima reunites with Delphine, but there’s way more going on this Island than Cosima imagined and Delphine can’t give her all the answers she needs. What is clear is that Rachel is now in firmly in charge at the right-hand of the 170-year-old founder of Neolution, PT Westmorland.
