Season 3 of Space’s critically-acclaimed, Canadian original series ORPHAN BLACK plunges the clone sisterhood into unexpected territory with the realization that they’re not alone. After neutralizing the threat by The Dyad Institute – Sarah, Helena, Cosima, and Alison (Maslany) are finally all united in their journey towards the truth of who and what they are. But new discoveries that include Helena’s kidnapping; a book that could contain the answers to their existence; and a set of treacherous male clones with an unknown agenda puts the Leda clone’s bond to the test. Unlike the Leda clones, the Castor clones, Mark, Rudy, Seth, Miller, and a number of others (Millen) grew up together, aware of who, and what they are. Developed by the military, the regimented Castor clones are singular in thought, movement, and allegiance. Hell-bent on kicking up dirt, they’re dispatched to tackle their mission from all sides. But differences in approach reveal cracks in their armor, and may be the very thing the sisters need to escape their clutches. The end of Season 2 saw the sisterhood more united than ever before.

Cosima’s mystery illness and broken heart inflected by Delphine’s (Evelyne Brochu) departure, has left her hanging on to life by a thread.

Until Sarah’s able to eliminate the threats against the sisterhood, she’ll never be able to have the life she wants with her daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler), Kira’s father Cal (Michiel Huisman), and her loyal foster family, brother Felix (Jordan Gavaris), and mother, Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy).
