A cable drama that has been a critical favorite, chalking up Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for its lead actress, will be wrapping it up. BBC America’s “Orphan Black,” in which Tatiana Maslany works overtime playing a number of clones of herself, will return in 2017 for what will be its fifth and final season.
The season four finale is scheduled for tonight.
Space, the network that airs the Canadian production in its home country, announced today that the show was renewed for a 10-episode final season. Along with Maslany, the series stars Dylan Bruce, Jordan Gavaris and Kevin Hanchard.
The series won a Peabody Award in 2014 and has brought a string of accolades for Maslany, including a Critics Choice Television Award and a Television Critics Association Award.
