BBC America is cloning another season of Orphan Back! The network made the official announcement at the Television Critics Association press tour today that they've ordered a third season of their excellently thrilling clone-focused drama series. Along with Broadchurch, Orphan Black will return for its new season in 2015.
BBC America, BBC Two and Carnival Films are teaming up to bring Bernard Cornwell's best-selling book series The Saxon Stories to the small screen. BBC America announced the news today that Stephen Butchard is set to adapt Cornwell's stories for a series titled The Last Kingdom. The announcement promises a series full of heroic deeds and epic battles, packed with politics, religion, warfare, courage, love, loyalty and "our universal search for identity."
Scripts for Peter Capaldiís brand new Doctor Who season have leaked online. The BBC officially announced the news on Monday, noting that five scripts from the upcoming Season 8 have officially reached the masses on the Internet.
A new season of Doctor Who is always a reason to celebrate, but there is even more buzz surrounding this summerís premiere, as it marks the rise of a new Doctor, this time played by actor Peter Capaldi. The new actorís appearance has been a long time coming.
One of our favorite new shows of 2013, Orphan Black deftly twines genres together like DNA strands, mixing a science fiction concept with a conspiracy thriller and imbuing it with dark comedy, suspense, action and every different kind of a romance you can think of. And holy Tilda Swinton, the shocking twists!
The promo somehow manages to remain just as cryptic as everything else weíve seen, which I take as a sign of a good mystery, rather than the flag-raising of a series that doesnít understand itself.
Of course BBC America and BBC Worldwide would want to make the introduction of the new Doctor a big affair, which is why they're launching a global world tour to officially introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. Peter Capaldi, who's playing the Twelfth Doctor in the beloved sci-fi series Doctor Who, will be joined by Jenna Coleman...
The new Doctor Who lands this August! Or so says the new teaser that BBC America has released, giving fans of the series a silhouetted glimpse of Peter Capaldi's Doctor, reminding fans that the seventh season of Doctor Who closed out with a Christmas Special ("The Time of the Doctor"), that saw the exit of the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith, and the arrival of the Twelfth Doctor...
For those unfamiliar with In The Flesh, the post-zombie series is a BBC drama which airs on BBC America in the U.S. If you didnít get on board for the first round, or need a bit of a refresher course, hereís a look at what you missed during In The Fleshís short first season, and what you should be looking forward to.
Saturday night is a tough slot for any series, but especially a series that is trying to garner interest from younger viewers, who still spend plenty of time out and about. Clearly it seems that audiences are digging the clone-oriented drama, just maybe not while they are out to dinner or bar hopping.
Iím not going to point any fingers here, but I will say that if youíre going to conceive a show about a clone, there are only so many things you can do with it that donít involve discovering more clones and trying to seek out the source. I have to assume that Orphan Blackís lukewarm ratings are the reason why all the other networks arenít putting their own clone dramas into development.
Yes, weíre huge fans of Orphan Black and its co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, who have promised even more slam-banging, head-scratching, eye-fooling fun in Season 2, which begins on Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET. And we want you to be just as jazzed about it as we are, so weíre offering up a simple primer guide to the mysteries the first season introduced, so you can jump right into the high-stakes shenanigans that Sarah and her genetic sisters will be getting into.
BBC America has done a great job of inspiring as much anticipation as possible out of fans, thanks to a marketing campaign featuring a slew of video content and interesting poster art. The latest teaser dropped today, and it hints at an action-packed season to come.
The Musketeersí first seasonís finale aired in the U.K. on Sunday, and co-producers BBC One, BBC Worldwide and BBC America took little time in officially signing up for a second 10-episode season to air in early 2015. An optimist would take that to mean this first season was pretty special, but the pessimist would say ratings were more of a factor than critical acclaim.
Those eagerly awaiting the second season of In the Flesh will be happy to know the zombie drama now has an official premiere date for BBC America. It looks like the network is aiming to pair In the Flesh with Orphan Black on Saturday nights, though In the Flesh will premiere a few weeks after the clone drama arrives.
