The clone club survived Season 3 of “Orphan Black,” but they’re far from unscathed in the aftermath of clone gate.
A new, action-packed trailer has arrived for the fourth season of BBC America’s cult hit. 2015 Emmy nominee Tatiana Maslany (“Woman in Gold”) reprises many of her roles — but not Beth. As Sarah, she’s told that she better “watch [her] back — this is what killed Beth.” But it looks like Sarah can’t resist following in Beth’s footsteps, dangerous as the path may be. There’s never a dull moment in “Orphan Black,” a fact which is conveyed nicely by this frenetic preview.
Check out a synopsis of the new season below, as well as the trailer. “Orphan Black” returns April 14.
The sisters have finally settled into some sense of normalcy. Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), reunited with her foster mum Mrs S. (Maria Doyle Kennedy), daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler) and the clone original, Kendall Malone (Alison Steadman) at an Icelandic hideout; Alison, enjoying the spoils of the drug trade with husband Donnie (Kristian Bruun) and helping the once rabid Helena settle into domesticity; and Cosima, hard at work on a cure for her illness with lab partner Scott (Josh Vokey). We find Sarah’s battle-worn foster brother Felix (Jordan Gavaris) accepting that he’s been left behind, and trying to pick up the pieces of his life – post ‘clone gate’; and Rachel (Maslany), the clever self-aware clone reunited with her “mother,” Susan Duncan (Rosemary Dunsmore) and attempting a reconciliation. But peace and calm seldom lasts long with this lot and Sarah’s hard won tranquility is disrupted when she receives a call that thrusts her right back in harm’s way. A mysterious ally tied to Beth leads Sarah back to where it all started. She’ll follow Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent new enemy, heading in a horrifying but familiar direction.
Also returning this season is Kevin Hanchard as Detective Art Bell, Beth’s partner who’s pledged his allegiance to her sisters, Ari Millen as a mysterious new Castorclone, the likes of which we’ve never seen before and James Frain as Ferdinand, the intimidating assassin for shadowy organization, Topside. Joining this season is Joel Thomas Hynes as Dizzy, an edgy hacker who doesn’t conform to group mentality; Jessalyn Wanlim as Evie Cho, a powerful, bioengineer; Lauren Hammersley as Adele, a wickedly-intelligent lawyer with a bit of a drinking problem; Gord Rand as Detective Duko, a mysterious figure with ties to Neolution; and Ian Matthews and Miranda Edwards as Frank and Roxie, Neolution’s clean-up crew.
