One Last ‘Orphan Black’ Season 3 Trailer, Plus Free Amazon Stream of Season 1
Orphan Black Season 3 has almost reached fever pitch in advance of Saturday’s premiere, but who couldn’t use one last cloned trailer? The latest look drops much more than dubstep by showing the spoilerly fate of a major character, plus find out how you can stream Season 1 for free and catch up on Season 2 before Saturday’s premiere!
Male clones, scorpions, secrets and even a quick look at a bandaged Rachel, it’s all there in the latest Orphan Black Season 3 trailer, if you don’t mind toning down the dubstep. On the plus side at least, those new to the franchise can quickly catch up before Saturday, as Friday, April 17 will see Amazon making all 10 episodes of Season 1 free to stream through its various platforms.
Of course, while you’d have to sign up for Amazon Prime to catch up on Season 2 after that, IFC will helpfully run a marathon of all 20 episodes of both seasons beginning at midnight on April 17, and leading into the premiere. Here’s how BBC-A describes the new season overall:
After neutralizing the threat by the DYAD Institute (the company that monitored them) – Sarah, Helena, Cosima and Alison (Maslany) are finally all united in their journey towards the truth of who and what they are. But new discoveries that include Helena’s kidnapping, a book that could contain the answers to their existence and the most shocking discovery of them all – a set of treacherous male clones with an unknown agenda – will test how tight their new bonds are.
No sooner has Sarah caught her breath after a stealthy escape from DYAD and the ruthless clone Rachel (Maslany), she is called upon to face the crazed, captive Castor clone, Rudy (Millen). But it is the discovery of Helena’s disappearance that spurs Sarah into action, rallying her sisters in the quest to reunite their clone family, and find peace once and for all.
Their greatest threat is a band of highly trained soldiers – identical brothers dubbed Project Castor. Unlike the sisterhood, Mark, Rudy, Seth, Miller and others (Millen) grew up together, fully aware of who and what they are. Developed by the military, this wolf pack was raised as regimented clones – singular in thought, movement and allegiance. Hell-bent on kicking up dirt, they’re dispatched to tackle their mission from all sides. But differences in approach betray cracks in their armor, and may be the very thing the sisters need to escape their clutches.
The sisters will need all the help they can get. With Cosima’s fluctuating health and no known cure for the mystery illness that ails her, she is holding onto life by a thread while nursing a broken heart left by her scientist lover Delphine (Evelyne Brochu). Can she find a cure in time to save herself and her sisters? As the turbulent world of Alison turns, she faces fresh suburban woes and new marital challenges with lovable oaf of a husband Donnie (Kristian Bruun). How far will Alison go to keep up the façade of her cookie cutter life? Sarah’s torn between her desire for a life with daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler) and Kira’s father Cal (Michiel Huisman) and the urge to protect her foster family – loyal and feisty brother Felix (Jordan Gavaris) and mother Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy). But Mrs. S’s betrayal may cause her to turn her back on the only mother she’s known.
As for the new faces this year, Shameless star Justin Chatwin will play Allison’s high school flame Jason Kellerman, while True Blood vamp James Frain will provide a deadly threat to the girls as “cleaner” Ferdinand. Additionally, Black Swan star Ksenia Solo will portray Cosima’s healer friend Shay, joining Warehouse 13 alum Kyra Harper as the military’s Dr. Coady, and Earl Pastko as Ferdinand’s bodyguard “Bulldog.” Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman will also return as Sarah’s baby-daddy Cal, while Evelyne Brochu is confirmed to reprise her role of Cosima’s scientist lover, Delphine, now leading the Dyad in Rachel’s absence.
You can check out the new trailer above, but will you watch (or rewatch) Seasons 1 and 2 before Orphan Black Season 3's April 18 premiere?
