The end is near for Orphan Black.
Creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson promise “an epic conclusion to the tale of Sarah and her clone sisters,” they said in a statement. “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.”
Since its 2013 debut, Orphan Black
has received critical acclaim, hauling in a Peabody Award in 2014 and scoring Golden Globe and Emmy nominations
for leading lady Tatiana Maslany.
“There is a weird stigma around sci-fi -- because it’s not straight drama, that there’s something arched about it,” Maslany told ET. “Some of my favorite shows and some of the best acting is happening in sci-fi.”
Maslany is optimistic that the perceived stain of sci-fi will go away. “That’ll change,” she said.
