Clone Club Prepares for ‘Final Trip’ in ‘Orphan Black’ Season 5 Photos
We’ll still have to wait until June for Orphan Black to begin its fifth and final season, but the Clone Club is officially back in business. See for yourself in a first round of photos from “The Final Trip,” and a new synopsis teasing Neolution’s final endgame.
Orphan Black released ten new photos from the final season, itself set to premiere on Saturday, June 10. Additionally, a new synopsis teases Kira’s vital importance in the final episodes, and a plot that could end the sestras’ time together:
This season, the walls close in on Sarah when nearly all her sestras and their allies are brought to heel by Rachel. Even more harrowing is that her daughter Kira has joined them. With the threat of Neolution having carte blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game. Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end…
Elsewhere of Orphan Black, the fifth and final season has confirmed that Evelyne Brochu, Calwyn Shurgold and James Frain will return as Delphine, Hell Wizard and Ferdinand. Season 5 has also added Watchmen star Stephen McHattie in the critical role of Neolution’s 170-year old founder, P.T. Westmoreland, along with Elyse Levesque as Detective Engers, a dirty Neolution cop who is a true believer; Andrew Moodie as Mr. Frontenac, Rachel’s new mysterious consultant; Simu Liu as Mr. Mitchell, Kira’s new homeroom teacher, and Jenessa Grant as Mud, an eclectic young islander.
Orphan Black may not release any final season footage just yet, but check out the teaser below, and stay tuned for more on the road to June.
