The cult hit Orphan Black is back! Tatiana Maslany returns in her multi-role turn in the fourth season of the show, which moves to Thursdays this season.
So far Sarah Manning (Maslany) has discovered that she is part of a long-term clone experiment; joined forces with her clone “sisters” from Project Leda; sought to undermine the ongoing efforts of the Dyad Institute and the Neolution movement; and squared off against a line of militarized male clones from Project Castor. In Season Four look for the introduction of a new clone — M.K. — and an ever-deepening mystery that brings Sarah around full circle to the clone who started it all: Beth Childs.
