“Orphan Black” ended its five-season run in 2017 but there is some potentially exciting news for members of the Clone Club.
According to Variety, sources have revealed that Temple Street Productions, which produced the original series, is on board to produce a new series set in the “Orphan Black” universe.
The new show, which is said to be in the early development stages at AMC, will not be a spinoff or reboot but an all-new story set in the same world as the original; apparently, producers are currently looking for a writer for the project.
Variety also reports that AMC is looking to bring in multiple people to pitch different concepts for the new series.
“Orphan Black” launched on BBC America in 2013 and became a cult hit. The Peabody Award-winning series starred Tatiana Maslany as multiple clones who find themselves at the centre of a nefarious conspiracy.
In 2016, Maslany, after being snubbed in previous years, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress for her performance(s) in the series. The show also starred Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce, Kevin Hanchard, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Kristian Bruun.
AMC and Temple Street Productions have yet to comment on the news.
