New Orphan Black Season 2 Trailer Hints At Violence And Secrets To Come
The BBC America series Orphan Black is about to return, and from the looks of things, the show should be better than ever. The breakout series has been heavily promoted by BBC America over the last several months, and with Season 2 looming just over the horizon, we’ve finally gotten a full trailer. If you haven’t watched it yet, you are certainly missing out on a brand new look at our not-so-merry band of clones.
During the minute-long preview, we get brief updates and reminders of where each of the main characters are at the end of Season 1. Kira was missing when the series left off and Cosima was dealing with an illness that left her bleeding at inopportune moments. The latter still seems to be getting some action of a sexual nature in the new trailer. Addtionally, prim and proper soccer mom Alison has turned into a betrayed and therefore hardened criminal—one who might be boozing a little too much in the new season. Additionally, between shots of the show’s main protagonist, Sarah vociferously states that there is only one of her as information about the clone program is revealed.
Sarah’s always been the biggest badass in the series, and the new trailer shows her brooding while walking through the rain and putting a gun to pro-clone Rachel’s head. At one point, the clones seem to be in the middle of a debate when Cosima simply asks Sarah, “What are you going to do, just start shooting people?” Because Sarah is pretty epic, she simply responds with the word, “Yeah.” There’s a reason she is so intense. Her daughter has been missing since the end of last season—just when things began heating up with Rachel. Still, Sarah seems as if she might be getting into plenty of unwanted trouble during Season 2. There’s a shot where it looks like she might be kidnapped and dumped into a car and another where she is pressed against a bathroom wall, startled and holding a knife defensively.
As noted prior, BBC America knows when it has a hit, and the cable network has been heavily promoting its sophomore series via teaser trailers and plenty of news items. So far, we know that the first episode of Season 2 will be called the ““Nature Under Constraint and Vexed,” coming from Sir Francis Bacon’s Plan of The Work. We’ve also seen several other teasers, each showing the war that seems to be brewing between Sarah and Rachel and the status of the clones at the beginning of the season. It’s not a lot to go on, but it’s a lot to get excited about.
Season 2 of Orphan Black is set to hit BBC America’s schedule on April 19 at 9 p.m. ET.
