The news doesn't come as a huge surprise considering the downturn in the ratings for Orphan Black Season 4

There was also word a while back that the creator had a five-year arc in mind, so it sure seems like the show is coming to an end at the right time. 

Sarah Barnett, President of BBC AMERICA, stated, “’Orphan Black is a thrilling, genre-bending ride that has captured our fans’ imaginations and hearts like no other show."

"Our genius team of actors, writers and producers have, time after time, taken us to a place of awe, delight and utter shock and surprise."

"Tatiana has been and continues to be a complete revelation, hers is one of the most remarkable performances on television, and she is joined by an extraordinary cast. We can’t wait to take our incredibly passionate audience on one final gobsmacking clone adventure.”

In season 4, the threat of Neolution has greatly increased and it has forced all of the characters to do things they never thought they would. 

They are desperate to rid the world of the evil corporation for good and based on the official description for Orphan Black Season 4 Episode 10, it sounds like the team will get closer than ever before to that being a reality. 

Orphan Black has been a roaring success for BBC America since it debuted almost four years ago. 

Tatiana Maslany has been a marvel to watch portraying various different characters throughout the four seasons to date. 

It's no surprise that she has been nominated for several awards throughout her run on the show and even won some. 

The downturn in the ratings could be attributed to the show being moved to a new night. 

The show may be down, but it still packs a punch by tripling the live ratings with 7 days of DVR added in.

Season 5 will no doubt wrap up all of the key storylines and bring the show to a natural conclusion!
