BBC AMERICA ORGINAL SERIES "ORPHAN BLACK" RENEWED FOR SECOND SEASON

Star Tatiana Maslany has earned acclaim for her multiple roles in season one

New York - May 2, 2013 - BBC AMERICA has renewed highly acclaimed original series, Orphan Black, for a second season to return as part of Supernatural Saturday in 2014. The conspiracy clone thriller starring Tatiana Maslany has been re-commissioned with a 10-episode order from Temple Street Productions, ahead of its season one finale on Saturday, June 1.

In making the announcement, Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America said: "Tatiana Maslany has delivered one of the year's standout performances. We're excited to commission a second season from the talented team of Graeme, John and Temple Street Productions, and we can't wait to see who Tatiana shows up as in season two."

"We're delighted with the second season order for Orphan Black and want to thank everyone at BBC AMERICA, BBC Worldwide and Space for their support and commitment to our show," commented David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers of Orphan Black and Co-Presidents of Temple Street Productions. "We're thrilled to continue this journey with such a strong team and fantastic cast, led by the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany. A huge thanks to the fans for their steadfast support of the show. We're looking forward to giving every one of them more Orphan Black."

The innovative series has earned critical acclaim including The Hollywood Reporter saying "It is, flat out, one of the most intriguingly entertaining new series of the year," TV Guide Magazine calling it: "a tangy, sexy blend of sci-fi and Run Lola Run-style chase thriller." and the New York Post proclaiming: "If God and the Emmys are fair, at least six Maslanys will be picking up statuettes this September."

Orphan Black is produced by Temple Street Productions in association with BBC AMERICA and Space. The series is co-created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director. Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier are executive producers on behalf of Temple Street. The cast includes Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey, Dexter), Jordan Gavaris (Degrassi, Unnatural History), Dylan Bruce (As The World Turns, Unstoppable), Kevin Hanchard (The Listener, Take the Lead) and Michael Mando (Make Your Move, The Colony).

The groundbreaking series launched on March 30 with Sarah (Maslany), an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, "Beth," who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones... but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.

Orphan Black: Season One lands on shelves July 16 on Blu-ray and DVD nationwide. In addition to Orphan Black returning in 2014, BBC AMERICA's first original scripted series COPPER, returns for its second season on Sunday, June 23, 2013.
