Adored by fans and critics alike in more than 170 countries, ORPHAN BLACK has transcended the landscape of Canadian television. Throughout its four-season run, this genre-bending series has introduced viewers to some of the most unconventional characters and storylines on television, championed individuality, personal evolution, and strong and complex female characters. Led by the Emmy®-award winning Tatiana Maslany, the series has amassed a fervent fan base spawning Clone Clubs around the globe. It has received a cavalcade of accolades, including a Peabody Award, as well as multiple Canadian Screen Awards for Best Drama, Writing, and Direction, along with multiple Best Acting wins for Maslany.
This season, after Sarah’s harrowing physical battle with Rachel and unsuccessful attempt to save Cosima on a remote Neoloution-operated island, she awakens to a familiar nightmare – her daughter, Kira, is in Rachel’s care at The Dyad Institute. Nearly all the clone sisters have been brought to heel and Sarah’s next in line. Yet this time, Rachel doesn’t resort to force to break Sarah’s defiant spirit. She wields her newfound power with grace, and dubiously promises an end to the violence if Sarah cooperates. Wary of these new terms, Sarah leans on Mrs. S to teach her a new strategy as they change tactics to pursue a long game. Working together, the sisters uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy, and finally learn the story behind their origin.
In the season opener, “The Few Who Dare” (Saturday, June 10 at 10 p.m. ET), a wounded Sarah, desperate to rescue Cosima get off the island and reunite with her family, journeys into the island’s interior, only to discover a mysterious village – the beating heart of the Neolution agenda. Meanwhile, a recovering Cosima reunites with Delphine and begins investigating the secrets of the Island under the watchful eye of Rachel who is now firmly in charge at the right-hand of the 170-year-old founder of Neolution, P.T. Westmorland. Back home, Neolution’s hunt for Helena, puts the screws to Alison and Donnie.
