Season 3 of ‘Orphan Black’ plunged the clone sisterhood into dangerous territory when they faced the threat of extermination by multiple forces, including a line of militaristic male clones and left fans with a cliffhanger – did Delphine perish from the gunshot wound or is she still alive? Luckily it looks like we won’t have to wait too long as the trailer for Season 4 seems to tease us with an answer.
Season 4 will pick up two months from where we last left the clones (Tatiana Maslany). The sisters have finally settled into some sense of normalcy. Sarah has been reunited with her foster mother Mrs S. (Maria Doyle Kennedy), daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler) and the clone original, Kendall Malone (Alison Steadman) is at an Icelandic hideout; Alison is enjoying the spoils of the drug trade with husband Donnie (Kristian Bruun) and is helping the once rabid Helena settle into some sort of domesticity; and Cosima is hard at work on a cure for her illness with lab partner Scott (Josh Vokey). Felix (Jordan Gavaris) is trying to live his life post ‘clone gate’ and Rachel has reunited with her “mother,” Susan Duncan (Rosemary Dunsmore), and attempting a reconciliation.
But, of course, the threat to the clone sisters’ lives continue to exist and Sarah soon receives a call that leads her back to where it all started… right back to Beth as well as a mystery ally, a new enemy and revelations that will shake their world.
As for Delphine? Her fate might not be as terminal as once thought as a quick peek at her Employee Personnel Record lists her as suspended. That could either mean that the Dyad Institute hasn’t found her body or she’s alive somewhere, unable to return to work.
Check out the trailer below followed by the Season 4 synopsis:
Season 4 of the drama will see leader-of-the-pack, Sarah, reluctantly return home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive and mysterious ally tied to the clone who started it all — Beth Childs. Sarah will follow Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent new enemy, heading in a horrifying new direction. Under constant pressure to protect the sisterhood and keep everyone safe, Sarah’s old habits begin to resurface. As the close-knit sisters are pulled in disparate directions, Sarah finds herself estranged from the loving relationships that changed her for the better.
