BBC America has gone and and whet the appetite of all Orphan Black fans.
The network unveiled a press release today that confirms production on Orphan Black Season 3 is officially underway, including along with it an extended synopsis of the events to come.
Orphan Black Season 2, of course, concluded with the shocking reveal of newly discovered male clones - Mark, the Prolethean cult follower; and Rudy, a prisoner of war - both portrayed by Ari Millen.
The third season will premiere in the spring of 2015 and plunge "the clone sisterhood into unexpected territory with the realization that they’re not alone," reads the press release, adding:
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 who seek to control them?
“We are incredibly proud and delighted to be commencing production on season three of Orphan Black,” said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers of Orphan Black and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions. “We’ve been fortunate to work with one of the best cast and crews in the business for the last two seasons. We could not be happier about the success of the show and how it continues to be embraced by audiences around the world.”
