The ten-episode third season for BBC America’s hit cloning drama “Orphan Black” has kicked off production in Toronto, where it will continue location and studio filming until March 2015 for a Spring 2015 premiere.
Picking up where Season 2 left off with the reveal of new male “Castor” clones, Season 3 has the clone sisterhood realizing they are more vulnerable than ever before against the highly-trained, identical male-soldiers, with Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena putting their friendship to the test.
“We can’t wait to get back to work on ‘Orphan Black’ with our wonderful partners Temple Street Productions and BBC America,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “After the shocking finale of Season 2, we are excited to share with our viewers the next dramatic twists and turns in the clone conspiracy, as conceived by series creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett.”
Season 3 of “Orphan Black” features returning cast members Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Dylan Bruce, Kevin Hanchard, Ari Millen, and Kristian Bruun, with Ari Millen, Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Evelyne Brochu, Kevin Hanchard, Zoé De Grand Maison and Michiel Huisman in supporting roles. An IDW comic book series is also expected in early 2015.
