Hey guys! Tatiana and the cast of Orphan Black are at San Diego Comic Con promoting the series. I’m so excited!! Anyhow I’ve added photos to the gallery throughout the weekend so this will be the master post for images. Many have been replaced after they were added with larger versions. Also, you can find all comic con related videos and interviews below. Big thanks to my friends for their photo donations AliKat, Victoria, Carol, Mary, and Neide.
“Orphan Black” season 5 lead star Tatiana Maslany and some of her co-stars will headline an upcoming panel at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.
According to TV Line, the gathering, which is open to fans and the media, will also serve as a farewell for Maslany and the hit BBC America series. “Orphan Black” has been renewed for its fifth and last season.
On July 22, Maslany will be joined by Jordan Gavaris, Kristian Bruun and Kevin Hanchard to respond to some questions and to share tidbits about the upcoming episodes.
“Orphan Black” co-series creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson will also be at the panel which will start at 4:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, Manson recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter to explain why they decided to end the show after season 5.
According to him, it was a creative decision between him, Fawcett and Maslany herself.
Manson also acknowledged the fact that season 4 was written in such a way that it will be easier for them to conclude the show next season.
Even though extending “Orphan Black” was a possibility, Manson, Fawcett and Maslany knew it was the best time to end it.
“We felt like we were setting up a really good runway for what we want to do in our final season, but we were leaving the door that we would have to stretch it out again and push the end point down the road,” he said.
Manson added that they didn’t want to reach a point where they’re just repeating storylines for the sake of extending the show.
They also don’t like the idea of introducing new clones just for the sake of having new characters.
With this, “Orphan Black” season 5 will pick up where season 4 left off. The series will also give answers to all the cliffhangers from the finale episode.
“Orphan Black” season 5 will premiere on BBC America sometime in April 2017.
