Have you heard of this teeny-tiny show that’s sweeping the Internet nation? It’s called Orphan Black and it stars about 87 iterations (give or take!) of bonkers-good actress Tatiana Maslany as a cavalry of clones searching for answers and their origin story. It’s OK if you’ve missed it (you rock-living folk are tough nuts to crack!), but with season three looming (it premieres this weekend — Saturday, April 18th) the time to get familiar has never been more necessary. And we know: having seen the first two episodes of the season, full-on brag style, we can say with utmost certainty that this is the season you’re not going to want to miss.
Of course, you may not get BBC America (some cable companies are cruel), or have missed the first two seasons. Not to worry! BBC America understands that you need your clone fix and you need it now, so they’re working with a heck of a lot of other places to make sure you’re able to tune in and get familiar with the sestrahood like no other. And with the introduction of the male line of clones, answers and questions are myriad, so even devoted fans may need a refresher.
Well! Here are the places to do that.
It’s also worth checking out your local On Demand platform, as many of them — including XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, DIRECTV, FiOS TV, DISH Network, Antietam Cable, Bear Creek, Bonita Springs, Briston Tennessee Essential Services, Click!, Conway Corporation, Frontier, GCI Cable Inc, Kuhn Communications, Metrocast, Summit Broadband, Cox, Advanced TV, Optimum — have or will have the episodes up on the following day. (Perfect for people who like to don’t like the idea of appointment television. Or, y’know, have social lives on Saturday nights.)
Season One Free Stream
Season one is also slated to stream for free on Amazon Instant Video for 24 hours starting Friday at 12:01 AM PT!
Series Marathon on TV
IFC has announced that it will air a 21-hour marathon of BOTH SEASONS (twist!), beginning at midnight ET on Friday, April 17th, leading up to the season premiere, which leads us to the most exciting news of all…!
Season Three Premiere
You don’t need BBC America to watch the premiere! That’s right, the Beebs totally understands just how badly you want to induct all of your friends to the Clone Club (I mean, who wouldn’t?), so Orphan Black‘s season 3 opener will air on Saturday, April 18 at 9 PM across ALL AMC networks – including AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and WE tv! What is this, Christmas? (Sorta: AMC joined forces with BBC last year.) And it’s proof of how much the network believes in the series, as it’s the first time the channel group has ever done such a cross-pollination.
