BBC America has released the full trailer for the final season of BBC America’s breakout original drama series Orphan Black ahead of the Season 5 premiere on June 10.
It all started on a train platform, and now it’s coming to an end. This season, the walls close in on Sarah when nearly all her sestras and their allies are brought to heel by Rachel. Even more harrowing is that her daughter Kira has joined them. With the threat of Neolution having carte blanche access to clone biology, Sarah is desperate to gain control, but realizes she must change tactics to pursue a long game. Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end…
Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany stars as multiple clones, along with Ari Millen, Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Skyler Wexler, Kevin Hanchard, Evelyne Brochu, Kristian Bruun and Josh Vokey.
Orphan Black is produced by Temple Street, a division of Boat Rocker Studios, in association with BBC America and Bell Media’s Space.

The networks presenting Planet Earth II are taking audience targeting to a new level.
AMC, SundanceTV and BBC America — owned or operated by AMC Networks — will simulcast Saturday’s premiere of Planet Earth II (9 ET/PT), a six-part event “celebrating the planet, its creatures and the universal stories that unite and transcend,” according to network executives.
The remaining five episodes of the nature series, the follow-up to the renowned 2006 series, will run Saturdays at 9 ET/PT on BBC America.
To personalize promotion for the different networks, three different versions of a new trailer, made available exclusively to USA TODAY, are narrated by a star associated with each network.
Tom Hiddleston, who won a Golden Globe for AMC’s The Night Manager, narrates the AMC version. Oscar winner Robert Redford, the famed Sundance Kid, provides the voiceover on SundanceTV, which he founded, and Tatiana Maslany, an Emmy winner for BBC America’s Orphan Black, is the narrator for the trailer playing on that network.
The nature series, put together from 2,089 shooting days across 117 filming trips in 40 countries, is narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Tatiana Maslany may have just won her first Emmy for Orphan Black, but next season will be the end of the road for BBC America’s critically beloved scifi clone drama. The fifth season (which doesn’t have a premiere date yet) will bring to a close the story of Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany), Alison Hendrix (Tatiana Maslany), Cosima Niehaus (Tatiana Maslany) and…
OK, fine, you get the picture. Even if you’ve never watched the show, you can imagine that the balancing act of playing upwards of eight different clones — sometimes simultaneously — is a tremendous feat that’s made fans and critics alike fall in love with Maslany, as well as her various characters. But after several of the clones were left in very, very bad places at the end of the fourth season, it seems like we may be headed for a few unhappy endings before some of the characters reach their happy ones.
“They’re all probably going to have different ends,” Maslany told TVGuide.com while on the red carpet for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards. “Some of them might not be happy, and some of them might be … a little tragic.”
Though it’s tough for fans to think of losing any of their precious clones, it’ll be even harder for Maslany, who has to say goodbye to playing not just one lead character, but several. Still, that didn’t stop her from choosing favorites when we asked which member(s) of the Sestra-hood she’ll miss the most.
“Maybe Helena,” Maslany mused. “Or Allison, because they kind of allow me to do a bit more bizarre stuff. … Like Helena, the character, I get to be a bit of an animal creature and do the things that we’re not supposed to do in everyday society. That’s always fun as an actor, to make a mess and freak people out a little!”
As long as Cosima is safe, we’re golden.
Orphan Black returns to BBC America for its final season in 2017.
