‘Orphan Black’ Season 3 Adds ‘Shameless’ Star Justin Chatwin in Mystery Role
Beloved clone drama ‘Orphan Black‘ decoded a bit of its third season sequence with the recent teaser attached to the ‘Doctor Who‘ finale, but most intel on the new adventures of Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Helena and Rachel has been heavily redacted. So it is with the BBC-A series’ latest season 3 addition, none other than ‘Shameless‘ star Justin Chatwin!
The ‘Orphan Black’ Twitter account revealed news of Chatwin’s casting late yesterday evening, though no details have yet emerged as to what role the actor will play in season 3. Chatwin also notably returns to ‘Shameless’ this coming season, despite his character
Steve Jimmy Jack apparently taking a figurative axe in the season 3 finale. As we’ve seen with star Michiel Huisman however, a major pay-cable series commitment doesn’t necessarily conflict with the ‘Orphan Black’ schedule.
So reads the ‘Orphan Black’ season 3 synopsis:
Season 3 plunges the clone sisterhood into unexpected territory with the realization that they’re not alone. Just when they thought they knew their enemies and allies, season three reveals our clones are more vulnerable than ever before. Highly trained, identical male-soldiers raise more questions than answers. Who are these new clones? Who created them? And more importantly, why do they exist?
Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena are stronger together than they are apart, but this season will put that bond to the test. Will they forge towards their truth, or fall at the feet of those that seek to control them?
In addition to Huisman’s return, we also know series star Evelyne Brochu is confirmed to return in the role of Cosima’s scientist lover, Delphine. We’re still waiting on a proper trailer before the show’s April 2015 premiere, but rewatch the ‘Orphan Black’ season 3 teaser below, and tell us what you want to see when the #CloneClub returns in 2015!
