'Orphan Black' Season 5 Will Not Be The Last? Tatiana Maslany Reveals Next Sequel Is 'A Little Tragic'; Clones In Danger?
Fans of "Orphan Black" already know that the upcoming season 5 will be the last. However, reports claimed that there will be an extension for the science fiction TV series.
The reports claimed that after Tatiana Maslany won the Best Lead Actress in the primetime Emmys, it seemed like "Orphan Black" season 5 will not be the last season as it may affect BBC America's decision to cancel the series, especially after slowly becoming a cult favorite.
However, the network has not released further announcements for a possible "Orphan Black" extension.
To recall, the series started off with Tatiana Maslany's character, Sarah Manning in a train station. While Sarah talks to somebody over the phone, she notices this odd woman named Beth Childs played by Tatiana Manning. The woman commits suicide and to her surprise this woman looks exactly like her.
The latest episodes of the Canadian TV series showed several characters in terrible situations. Manning got into a serious incident and it is still unclear how she will survive her injuries in the next and reported finale series. This started speculation that the clone or clones could die in the upcoming episodes.
"It's tough because you've fallen in love with these characters," Maslany told reporters during an interview at San Diego Comic Convention. "And they seem fragile at this point. I don't want the characters to die. But if the story does, you know, then they could."
"They're all probably going to have different ends," Maslany added. "Some of them might not be happy, and some of them might be ... a little tragic."
The showrunner Graeme Manson also spoke about the BBC America series in the recently concluded 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.
"We try and explore a new branch of contemporary science every year," co-showrunner Graeme Manson told on the red carpet, "and this year... we're looking at prolongevity and life extension, which is a very interesting and topical science right now."
However, he opted not to reveal whether major deaths are going to happen in the next season and said they are still discussing about it to provide fans the season's best conclusion.
"Orphan Black" season 5 is expected to start airing in April 2017 on BBC.
