One of the biggest upsets of this year’s award season was that Tatiana Maslany didn’t receive an Emmy nomination for her role in BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’. In the series, the actress plays half a dozen different characters that all have their own distinct personalities despite being clones of each other. Considering that she practically plays the whole cast and didn’t get nominated is an absolute atrocity, but that’s not stopping one last season’s hottest shows from returning stronger than ever. After being officially renewed about halfway through the first season, Sarah, Alison, Cosima, and the rest of the clones will return to the network next month and now we finally have a proper trailer.
Previously, we’ve received a number of short sneak peeks of the upcoming season through the show’s official Instagram page, but now we have the opportunity to check out a full trailer for the second season of the critically acclaimed BBC America Original Series. You can check out the trailer titled ‘One of a Kind’ from the network’s YouTube channel below, followed by a synopsis of the season:
Season 2 hits the ground running with Sarah in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira. Her scorched earth tactics spark a war with pro-clone, Rachel, dividing and imperiling all the clones. As Sarah discovers more about her past, mysterious newcomers appear, but can they be trusted?
