Heads Up, Clone Club! "Orphan Black" Renewed For Third Season
Do you hear that? It's the sweet sound of all your favorite shows coming back.
Orphan Black, aka one of the best shows on television at the moment, got renewed for a third season on Wednesday. It’s no surprise, either – the sci-fi series, which sees the excellent Tatiana Maslany play several different clones in each episode, is currently enjoying its biggest surge in popularity since its launch on BBC America.
The renewal means we'll see more of Tatiana Maslany's face next year. A lot more.
It will return for another ten-episode run (why are you so short, BBC shows?) in Spring 2015. So… Clone Club dance party anyone? If you don’t know what that means, you clearly have not seen enough of Orphan Black. Go back and fix that.
In other BBC America news, the network has also picked up the David Tennant and Olivia Colman crime drama Broadchurch for a second season – finally – as well as approving two new shows, according to Variety. Well, there goes your social life for 2015 then. So many shows to watch, so little time.
The first new offering is Tatau, a mystery series from the makers of Being Human that follows two British tourists who discover a dead body while traveling in the South Pacific. There's also a period drama called The Last Kingdom from the makers of Downton Abbey, which is based on Bernard Cornwell's franchise The Saxon Stories.
Also coming back: Broadchurch. It's been far too long.
