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.
You’re going to see a whole lot of Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who Season 10 kicks off the 12th Doctor’s final run, but you may see more of Pearl Mackie’s new companion Bill, judging by the latest trailer. Get the full picture of Season 10 (including Missy’s return) with some new Doctor Who, and Class to boot.
Updates in the design of Doctor Who are built into its central character, so it isn’t any surprise that recent decades have upgraded some of the sci-fi staple’s more hokey-looking foes. Now, Season 10 will take us back to the classic-looking Cybermen for a two-part arc that kicks off Peter Capaldi’s final episodes.
Orphan Black joined the ranks of 2017 series debuting later in the year than we’ve come to expect, but the fifth and final season will no less bring some major changes to the show’s DNA. Case in point, our first teaser for the June premiere sees Sarah sticking up for her clone sisters, but will they all live through the final season?
We haven’t heard very much from Pearl Mackie’s Bill since learning that Doctor Who would say goodbye to Peter Capaldi at 2017's end, but surely our new companion is sticking around, right? Either way, Bill makes an impression in the latest Season 10 promo, heading into dangerous territory with Nardole and The Doctor.

Doctor Who isn’t even beginning the search for Peter Capaldi’s replacement until sometime this summer, but that isn’t stopping overseas betting agencies from attaching major stars to the title role. After some initial oddsmakers’ bets, another agency is placing high odds on not only a female Doctor, but on Tilda Swinton at that.
Well, Kevin Smith’s TV credits had to be leading somewhere, if not a Mallrats or Buckaroo Banzai series. Now, the recent Supergirl director has in mind to develop Spawn creator Todd McFarlane’s Sam and Twitch for a TV adaptation at BBC-America; both directing and writing.
It could be some time before we learn if Benedict Cumberbatch ever gives us another 90 minutes of Sherlock, but Masterpiece and BBC have another way to fill the void. Cumberbatch will star in and executive produce new drama The Child in Time, based on Ian McEwan’s 1987 novel.
We’re generally used to fresh Orphan Black episodes in the spring, but it seems everyone these days is pushing back premieres. So it is, that the fifth and final season of the BBC-A’s clone drama has confirmed a summer return date for “The Final Trip.”
