AMC is working on a new sequel series based on Orphan Black, which was first hinted at all the way back in 2019. Variety just shared the news that Anna Fishko will write and act as an executive producer for the series continuation. So far, plot details still remain under wraps outside of the fact that it won’t act as a reboot of the original, but a new story set within the same world. Temple Street Productions is also returning to produce the series.
Fishko has built up quite a reputation with AMC due to her work as a supervising producer of Fear the Walking Dead‘s fourth season. She also worked on Netflix’s The Society series, which sadly ended up getting canceled due to COVID indefinitely postponing production. She’s also worked on Colony, The Last Tycoon, and Tyrant in the past.
The writer will take over the series which was created by John Fawcett and Graeme Manson, and ran for five seasons back in 2013. There’s no word if Tatiana Maslany might also appear in some capacity after leading the original series. It’s also uncertain if they might bring back the clone concept, or explore a different science-fiction concept. We might still have to wait sometime before we truly find out what the project has to offer..
