It’s no secret that the Clone Club is taking over the world, one Tatiana Maslany at a time — and this news only cements that fact. BBC Worldwide North America announced today that it has secured a deal with Amazon.com, Inc., which will allow the retailer to stream the first season (as well as future seasons) of the popular sci-fi series exclusively on Prime Instant Video.
Tag: Orphan Black (1-10 of 21)
“Surrender yourself.” Those are the ominous words of pro-clone Rachel, who seems determined to make the lives of the Clone Club a living hell. The end of season one found all the ladies divided, as Alison signed a contract for a deal that would supposedly guarantee their safety, while Sarah and Cosima refused to do so. Meanwhile, Helena seemingly met her demise, and we were introduced to our newest Maslany character, Rachel — an executive of Dyad Institute, who may or may not double as the Original Non-Clone.
The new teaser, which includes a montage of brand new clips from season 2, not only hints at a darker and more intense storyline (wherefore art thou, Felix?) but also gives us this haunting reminder from Sarah Manning: “Everything we are belongs to them.”
The war between Sarah and Rachel will be heating up when BBC America’s Orphan Black returns with its season 2 premiere on April 19. We showed you the exclusive first look at that war a few months back, and now Entertainment Weekly’s Instagram account has an exclusive video sneak peek of the scene in question, as Sarah confronts Rachel — courtesy of a slap across the cheek and a gun pointed at the face. And judging by that logo on a monitor in the background, in looks like said confrontation is taking place at none other than the Dyad Institute itself. Clone-on-clone action, people! READ FULL STORY
Counting down the days until the return of Orphan Black? We’ve got over two months left until season 2 of the BBC America clone drama premieres on April 19, but one of the key players insists the wait will be worth it. “Season 2 of Orphan Black is like season 1 on crack,” promises Maria Doyle Kennedy, who plays Sarah’s foster mom, the mysterious Mrs. S.
That was just one of the tidbits Kennedy dropped when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to chat about the show as well as her music career. Another tidbit? Looks like we can expect more Mrs. S in season 2. “You’re going to see more of her,” says Kennedy. “I had a great time in season 1 and there were some great scenes, but there was also a lot of hovering. They just really liked me so wrote me more this time, so that’s great.” READ FULL STORY
BBC America’s breakout hit Orphan Black may not return until April 19, but the anticipation is already building for its second season.
During the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, co-creator Graeme Manson and stars Tatiana Maslany and Jordan Gavaris fielded a bevy of questions from eager critics about the new season, and thankfully, they were more than willing to delve out the scoop.
Much in the same way the clones themselves have had to piece together little bits of information to understand the conspiracy that led to their very existence, fans of Orphan Black have been getting some tantalizing teases about season 2 over the past few weeks they can use to piece together what awaits them when the drama returns on April 19 (on BBC America here in the United States, and Space in Canada). First we had that super-rad first look image with Sarah and Rachel doing battle, complete with fresh intel courtesy of show creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett. Then came word that Suits star (and Orphan Black admirer) Patrick J. Adams would be showing up in a guest spot.
Well, we now have a brand new season 2 Orphan Black teaser to add to the mix. The trailer will air during the big Doctor Who Christmas special on December 25, but we have an early Christmas present for you right here and right now as you can view it in full below! “I’m part of a sisterhood like no other,” says actress extraordinaire Tatiana Maslany in the trailer, while test tubes representing her various clones begin turning into DNA strands. “A piece of a puzzle I can barely comprehend. My life is someone else’s experiment.”
Of course, fans will pore over every second for any hints or clues as to what season 2 has in store, while also counting down the days (not-so) patiently until the show’s return on April 19. In the meantime, take a view for yourself by clicking on the video below. And for more Orphan Black scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY
Orphan Black got a lot of famous fans when it debuted in the spring on BBC America, and one of them was Patrick J. Adams of USA’s Suits, who tweeted often about his love of the show. Well, the two parties have now been brought together in an official capacity as Adams spent today on the Toronto set of Orphan Black filming a guest spot for season 2 (which will premiere April 19, 2014).
Deadline first reported the news, and now a statement comes from Adams himself, who states that, “From my first viewing of the first episode I knew there wasn’t another show on television that I wanted to be part of more than Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslany is doing some of the best work on TV. Period. Really, I just wanted front row seats to that performance.” READ FULL STORY
Tatiana Maslany is once again pulling double duty. In this exclusive first image from season 2 of Orphan Black, we see the actress playing two clones doing battle. (You can see the photo in all of its huge, high-resolution glory by clicking on the magnifying glass button above.) On top is Sarah Manning, the fearless protagonist who acted as our entry point into the mysterious world of human clones. On the bottom with the gun on her face is Rachel Duncan, the Neolutionist “Proclone” who appeared primed to strike back in the season 1 finale after Sarah refused to cooperate. Judging by what we see here, they will be none too chummy when season 2 kicks off on April 19, 2014 (on BBC America here in the States and Space in Canada). Entertainment Weekly spoke with Orphan Black creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson to get the full scoop on what this image means and what else to expect in season 2. READ FULL STORY
Seven was a lucky number for Tatiana Maslany this year: She broke out with her mesmerizing performance — well, seven of them, if you count all the clones she has played to date — in BBC America’s conspiracy drama Orphan Black. As a result, EW has named her one of our Entertainers of the Year. We asked the 28-year-old Canadian actress to select her most memorable day from her banner year, and she chose her journey this summer to San Diego for Comic-Con. Maslany being Maslany, she couldn’t just play one role that day, so she took on two: celebrity and fan. Read on:

Hot Paul’s career is almost as hot as he is.
With Orphan Black not returning until April, star Dylan Bruce is using his downtime wisely. Not only has he scheduled a guest stint on The CW’s hit show Arrow, but EW has confirmed his recent Twitter announcement that he has joined Lifetime’s TV movie Flowers in the Attic.
Bruce joins the movie adaptation as Bart Winslow, the second husband of Corrine, played by Heather Graham. The movie is an adaptation of V.C. Andrew’s novel, which tells the story of what happens when Corrine leaves her four children with their grandmother (played by Ellen Burstyn), who then locks them in the attic due to a family secret. Corrine’s two eldest children, Cathy and Chris, will be played by Kiernan Shipka and Mason Dye.
Flowers in the Attic is currently shooting in Vancouver, and according to Lifetime, expects a release date of early next year.
As far as we’re concerned, the more Dylan Bruce in our lives, the better.

When we were putting together our New Hollywood issue, one of the big questions we faced was: How many times do we include Tatiana Maslany? The 27-year-old Canadian actress dazzles on the BBC America drama Orphan Black, playing seven clones and counting (including distressed single mom Sarah, type-A suburban mom Alison, misguided self-mutilator Helena, quirky Ph.D. student Cosima) who are entangled in a murky, dangerous conspiracy.
How does Maslany slip so easily into all of these different characters? Does she have a creative crutch? Turns out, she gets in tune with each role by, well, playing specific tunes.
