Space has announced the renewal of ORPHAN BLACK for an upcoming fifth and final season. 10 additional one-hour episodes of ORPHAN BLACK season 5 will premiere in 2017.
“The fourth season took viewers down a rabbit hole deeper into the heart of the conspiracy and explored what viewers were yearning to see – Beth’s back story. After the roller coaster ride of Season 4, we were left on the edge of our seats,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “Season 5 promises to take us into uncharted territories, where the stakes are higher than ever. Knowing the prowess of the ORPHAN BLACK creative team, I’d say, fasten your seatbelts.”
“We are excited to deliver an epic conclusion to the tale of Sarah and her clone sisters,” said co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson. “The past four seasons have been a phenomenal adventure and we are eternally grateful to our loyal fans who have loved the twists and thrills of our weird little show. We are thankful to our partners at Temple Street, Space and BBC America for their support, and giving us the opportunity to end on a high.”
The season 4 finale of ORPHAN BLACK airs tonight (June 16) on BBC America (in the US) and Space (in Canada).
