ORPHAN BLACK Season 2 Preview: BBC America’s Breakout Hit Returns Without Missing a Beat

by     Posted One week ago

orphan-black-season-2-preview-slice

Orphan Black debuted last year on BBC America to little recognition or fanfare, but picked up a cult following during its run that led to near-riots (in certain, mostly critical circles) that its star, Tatiana Maslany, wasn’t nominated for all of the acting awards available.  This year, the audience should be bigger, and so is the pressure for the show to keep up its energy and intrigue.

The series is in some ways a drama disguised as sci-fi, although what makes it great is that it’s also wholly both.  And in the upcoming season, Maslany’s portrayal of her many on-screen versions continues to be diverse, distinctive, and divine.  Hit the jump for more on where things kick off in Season Two, and a video recap of Season One (and if you aren’t caught up, get so tout de suite!)

Tatiana Maslany Talks ORPHAN BLACK, Getting Through Season 2 on Adrenaline, Developing the Different Clones and Their Backstory, and More

tatiana-maslany-orphan-black-interview

Season 2 of the BBC America dramatic conspiracy thriller Orphan Black sees Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) in a desperate race to find her missing daughter.  The wild pursuit brings her head-to-head with ruthless clone Rachel (Maslany), and Sarah, along with her clone sisters Alison (Maslany) and Cosima (Maslany), struggle to pick up the pieces of their broken lives while dealing with the harsh reality that no one around them can be trusted.

During this interview to promote the return of the show, the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany, who expertly pulls off playing every clone, talked about running on adrenaline to get through the season, developing the different clones, doing a backstory for each clone, how she gets into each character, the process for shooting more than one clone in the same scene, how this project has changed her, what it’s like to be in the public eye, mastering all of the different accents, taking everything to the next level for Season 2, how much fun she had guesting on Parks and Recreation, and how she’d love to work with Gena Rowlands.  Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers

The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor was simulcast in over 200 countries today, creating a nice opportunity to air teasers for other fine British productions.  Naturally, there was a 10-second promo for the Doctor Who Christmas special which promised “Silence Will Fall” and a visit to the planet Trenzalore.  There were also slightly longer 30-second promos for Sherlock season 3 and Orphan Black season 2. Given where the previous season left off, the Sherlock clip opens on a tombstone that reads “Sherlock Holmes” before reassuring fans with the hashtag #sherlocklives.  The Orphan Black clip reveals the April 19, 2014 premiere date, then retreats as a distraught Tatiana Maslany stalks toward the camera.

Sherlock returns to PBS January 19.  Peter Capaldi will be fully revealed as the new Doctor on December 25.  Watch the teasers after the jump.

This morning, Entertainment Weekly unveiled it’s Comic-Con-centric cover for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Inside this week’s issue, though, EW also has new cover images for Carrie, Ender’s Game, and the buzzworthy BBC series Orphan BlackChloe Grace Moretz is fittingly seen covered in blood in her Carrie cover, while we get another look at Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford in uniform for the highly anticipated sci-fi adaptation Ender’s Game.  A proper panel for Carrie isn’t on the SDCC 2013 schedule, but we will indeed see ones for Ender’s Game and Orphan Black, with the latter’s star Tatiana Maslany also taking part in EW’s “Women Who Kick Ass” Hall H panel on Saturday.

Hit the jump to take a look at the covers.  Carrie opens on October 18th and Ender’s Game hits theaters on November 1st.

Comic-Con 2013 Schedule for Friday, July 19th Includes THE WORLD’S END, THE WALKING DEAD, ROBOCOP, GAME OF THRONES, & SPIDER-MAN 2

Yesterday we got a look at the rather tame Comic-Con 2013 schedule for Wednesday’s Preview Night and Thursday, and today SDCC has unveiled the full panel lineup for Friday, July 19th.  Last year was the first year that Comic-Con moved TV panels into Hall H for days other than Sunday, and after getting a look at Friday’s lineup, the Con is starting to look more and more like a TV convention.  While there are first-looks at The World’s End, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Kick-Ass 2, and Riddick to look forward to, the entire convention is packed with TV panels on Friday, including Hall H panels for The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and the Veronica Mars movie.

I’m baffled by the fact that the panel for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Joss Whedon is being held in Ballroom 20 and not Hall H, and at the same time as the Walking Dead panel no less.  Hit the jump to take a look at the highlights from Friday’s schedule.  Comic-Con 2013 runs from July 18th – July 21st.
