A program that has quietly emerged as one of the most critically acclaimed shows on television will be back for another season. The Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker reports that BBC America renewed “Orphan Black,” which the report says has drawn critical praise and earned a cult following thanks to the talents of its star, Tatiana Maslany.
The network will bring back the science-fiction drama in 2015 for a third season of 10 episodes. The drama stars Maslany as several clones who become aware of each other as adults, and try to track down the mystery of their origins.
BBC America also ordered another season of “Broadchurch,” which had also earned a renewal in its native U.K. The second season will air on BBC America as part of its Dramaville programming block.
The network is also adding two new dramas. “Tatau” is set in the Cook Islands and features two young people from the U.K. who set out to travel the world but end up in the islands. “The Last Kingdom” is a historical drama based on Bernard Cornwell’s book series “The Saxon Stories.”
