orphan_black

From a media release:

Space has confirmed that Season 3 of the hit original series ORPHAN BLACK is set to premiere Saturday, April 18 at 9 p.m. ET on Space.

The first look at Season 3 of ORPHAN BLACK is also now available. The image shows Leda Clone Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) meeting face-to-face with Castor Clone Rudy (Ari Millen).

Season 3 of ORPHAN BLACK reveals the clones as more vulnerable than ever before, with the highly trained, identical male-soldier “Castor Clones” complicating matters. And though Sarah, Cosima, Alison, and Helena realize they are stronger together, this season puts that bond to the test. In the Season 3 premiere of ORPHAN BLACK, Saturday, April 18 at 9 p.m. ET on Space, Sarah (Maslany) repels a potentially lethal Topside menace as she fights to locate a disappeared Helena (Maslany); the threat of Castor (Millen) looms anew.
