Orphan Black Season Two Teaser Gets Testy
There’s a new teaser out for the second season of BBC America’s breakout hit, Orphan Black, though one would be hard-pressed to suss out any sort of clues from it. The Tatiana Maslany-fronted series about a set of human clones has had a rapid ascension up the Buzz Ladder, making it one of the most anticipated returning series of the year.
The swirling face-in-a-test-tube image from the teaser is accompanied by a few simple lines spoken simultaneously by all of the clones: “I’m part of a sisterhood like no other. A piece of a puzzle I can barely comprehend. My life is someone else’s experiment. My name is … and I’m one of a kind.” So many vague things, so little time; what to do, what to do? And more importantly: what will it all mean regarding the fates of the clones we've come to know and love thus far?
In the new, word-heavy clip, the many faces of Maslany are seen briefly and heard quite clearly: they’re a bunch of self-aware little snowflakes this season, and they’re not going down without a fight. No doubt the pressure is on — amplified by that teeny, tiny little Golden Globe nomination the actress scooped up earlier this month.
And it’s not just about Cosima Niehaus, Alison Hendrix, or Sarah Manning anymore. Making another appearance in season two propaganda (a previously released photo also featured her) is Rachel Duncan, the pro-clone who was raised aware of the details of how her existence came to be, leading us to assume we’re to see — and hear — a lot more of the latest clone in season two. Do you really need any more reasons to be excited about this show?
We may have to wait until Saturday, April 19, 2014 to get our answers, but at least we know promotional materials won’t be in short supply — thanks to your veracity, Clone Club. Just think: if they’re already giving us this much this early, imagine what’s in store as we inch closer to April. The hardest part is always the patience, young squirrel.
