‘Orphan Black’ Goes Off the DNA Rails in First Final Season Teaser
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?
After announcing a June 10 premiere date for Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Rachel, Helena, MK and all the others, the Tatiana Maslany-fronted drama debuted a first teaser for its final season. There’s no actual footage as of yet, but a distinct impression that the clone sisters are holding to themselves.
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 hold onto final season footage for a few months, but what should we predict for the final episodes?
