This Orphan Black Season 3 Trailer Prepares For The Clone War

fb share tweet share

Earlier we showed off a new still from season 3 of BBC America’s Orphan Black, as well as recounted some details that creator Graeme Manson shared with the world. But the clone drama wasn’t done, as they released this short, ominous new teaser trailer, and finally pinned down a concrete premiere date for the new episodes, something that is sure to make fans happy.

Outside of the earlier photo—which shows Sarah (Tatiana Maslany in one of her many, many roles) facing off with Rudy (Ari Millen), one of the recently unveiled set of male clones, in a Dyad prison cell—this is our first real look at the upcoming, long-in-the-works season 3. And even this video is a tease in every sense, and rather than offering anything in the way of details or specifics, it sets the brooding tone and lets you know that a clash is coming down the pipeline.

This Orphan Black Season 3 Still Puts Two Clones Face To Face

fb share tweet share

Orphan Black S3One of the most inventive and engaging sci-fi shows in recent memory is BBC America’s Orphan Black, the clone drama that manages to be equal parts fantastical and plausible. The premise—protagonist Sarah Manning learns that she’s a clone, that there are many just like her, and that someone is picking them off one by one—leads to some intriguing plot twists and to virtuoso acting by Tatiana Maslany, who plays numerous different iterations of herself (and finally snagged a SAG award nomination for her efforts). Now we’re learning more about what’s in store for season 3 via a still and an interview with series co-creator Graeme Manson.

In case your short-term memory isn’t what it used to be (it happens to the best of us), here’s where we left the clone club at the end of season 2 (major SPOILERS ahead if you’re not caught up).

Orphan Black’s Ominous Season 3 Teaser Will Make You Wish It Was Next Summer

fb share tweet share

BBC America’s excellent clone drama Orphan Black is embarking on its third season and continues to be one of the best, most inventive shows on our TVs. There’s not a solid date for when we will see new episodes of the critically acclaimed, publicly under-watched series—some estimates say it won’t drop until summer 2015—but now we’ve got a new teaser just to keep your interest, and though it doesn’t reveal much, it’s kind of perfect.

When I say it doesn’t reveal much, I should say that this trailer doesn’t actually reveal anything, though there may be some hints buried in there for eagle-eyed observers. The spot juxtaposes the image of a cell dividing again and again over the haunting tones of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.” It gives you a sense of tone, and given the subject matter, the idea of Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), and all of her other clones, being their own people and not belonging to anyone else, is especially important. More than anything else, this video sets a mood for the upcoming season.

Orphan Black Season 3 Raises These New Questions

fb share tweet share

OrphanBlackLineupOne thing nice thing about BBC America’s Orphan Black is that, when they add new characters to the cast, you can rest assured that star Tatiana Maslany is going to play a good many of them. Production has kicked off on season 3 of the unexpected hit—we didn’t initially think it would get nearly as good as it did—and now that cameras are rolling and things are getting underway, the network has revealed some details to give you an idea of what to expect from the upcoming episodes.

Admittedly, as much as I enjoyed season 1 of Orphan Black, I never wound up watching season 2—not because it wasn’t good, it somehow just never fit into my schedule—so I have to say, some of what follows came as a bit of a surprise. Along those lines, if you haven’t watched those episodes, you might want to sit this one out or risk encountering spoilers.

Comic-Con 2014 Panel Vids For The Walking Dead, Interstellar, And More

Comic-Con-LogoAnother massive installment of San Diego’s Comic-Con International has come and gone, leaving the fans to disperse to the four corners of the Earth, laden down with bags of swag. Of course, many people didn’t get to go this year, and there are even more who’ve never been to Comic-Con at all. Thankfully, this is the internet age, so even if you weren’t amid the throngs last week, you can still experience some of the awesomeness via the slew of panel videos that have popped up online.

These don’t give you the visceral thrill of being in the middle of 6,000 cheering geeks in Hall H, and you’re not going to get to see the really cool stuff like that Avengers 2 footage, but many of the panel discussions and Q&A segments are available online to watch in full. Check out the ones we found below, and if you want to recreate the experience more fully, feel free to watch them while crowded into a tool shed with 30 or 40 strangers. But you have to wait in line for 12 hours first.

Orphan Black Expands The Mystery With IDW Comic Series

fb share tweet share

orphan blackHow heartwarming it is that Comic-Con, despite the growing attention paid to movies and TV shows, can still deliver ground-rattling comic book news. I thought I’d heard the best news of the week with the announcement that Snake Plissken is returning for an Escape From New York comic series, but it’s been equaled by news of an upcoming Orphan Black series from IDW Publishing. Will a copy of Tatiana Maslany come with each issue?

Orphan Black‘s Temple Street Productions is teaming with IDW on the project, which won’t rehash the TV series’ central plotline, but will delve into surrounding stories. Temple Street Managing Editor John Young said in the press release that the huge fan reaction to the show at last year’s Comic Con inspired them to “give back to fans of the show through a medium so vital to the science fiction world.” The series was recently renewed for a third season, which will open up this clone-filled universe even more. But there’s already a solid foundation to build on.
