"Orphan Black" will end after season 5
We have good news and bad news for fans of Orphan Black (if you’ve never seen the show, you should highly consider making it a priority). The show has been renewed for a fifth season!
That’s obviously the good news. The bad news? It’ll be the show’s final season.
The BBC America thriller starring the insanely talented Tatiana Maslany, who plays nine (and counting) characters on the show — all clones, has been a cult sensation among fans for four incredible seasons.
Naturally, the show creators and producers have released statements. As sad as we are to hear the news, it’s hard not to be thankful for the time we had with Maslany and all 800 of the characters she played (slight exaggeration — but only slight). Their statements are actually helping to soothe our hearts.

Executive producers David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg:
BBC America president Sarah Barnett:
We can’t wait either. The final episode of Orphan Black Season 4 airs tonight.
