BBC America has unveiled the trailer for Orphan Black Season 4, and it appears the new season will be delving further into the history of its central characters. In addition to the trailer, the network has also announced the show’s official premiere date: Thursday, April 14th. So mark those calendars, Clone Club—Sarah Manning is back.
When the third season left off, things for Tatiana Maslany’s many characters were seemingly in a happy place, with Allison winning an election and Sarah escaping death, once again. But the devious Rachel is revealed to be held at a house where she reunites with Susan Duncan, as more questions are raised regarding the history of the clone program.
This new trailer takes a dubstep approach to introducing the new season, which is more than a little irritating, but we do get our first good look at new footage plus Maslany wearing a You’re Next mask. I’ll admit I found Season 3 a bit underwhelming—the convolutedness of the plot really became a hindrance, as the story was seemingly stretching to find ways to keep all the various characters engaged in the main overarching storyline. I’m curious to see what further “secrets” can be revealed about the program, as it feels like that’s been the main drive of the series for too long now. Here’s hoping things get streamlined a tad in this new season, and with a number of new cast members joining the ensemble, perhaps these characters will inject some flesh blood into the series. Though whatever the case, watching Maslany kill it week after week is reason enough to tune in.
