ORPHAN BLACK’s Final Trip Begins in New Teaser Trailer

ORPHAN BLACK’s Final Trip Begins in New Teaser Trailer

Since 2013, there’s only been one sestrahood to rule them all—the cell phone wielding multiple Maslanys that make up the genetic identicals of Clone Club. But unfortunately, things change and reigns must end: and with the fifth season of Orphan Black we’ll finally understand the motivations behind the crazy science that keeps everyone’s favorite cloned humans alive. And the latest trailer for the BBC America series reminds us of just that: the crazy ride will have a conclusion—one that hopefully leaves all our favorite clones alive.

After all, Tatiana Maslany’s many mantles have faced assassinations, medical maladies, monitors, murders (accidental or otherwise), kidnappings, drug kingpinning, and so much more (to say nothing of their pesky mayfly brothers in Project Castor). It’d be nice to imagine a world wherein the sestras are done with this Neolution ‘ish, able to live out Helena’s babka cake-laced dream of normalcy from the beginning of season four. And, clearly, the women seem hell-freakin’-bent on getting their lives back, regardless of whatever that creepy old P.T. Westmoreland might want.

Now, we’ve been lucky enough to see the premiere of season 5 already—we know, we’re the worst—and though we cannot give away any spoilers, we can tell you: ho-ly doodle does it set us up for one hell of a final fight. With Rachel back in the loving arms of Neolution, the table has been reset for a sestra-on-sestra-on-sestra-on-sestra battle for bodily autonomy and control of a biological innovation previously unseen the world over—and sure to change the game for everyone, clone or no clone.

But that’s all you get from us until the final season premieres on Saturday, June 10th on BBC America. Are you going to tune in? Let us know in the comments below!
