ANNOUNCED ON THE EVE OF THE 11th ANNIVERSARY OF ACCLAIMED DRAMA ORPHAN BLACK


Orphan Black: Echoes June 23 AMC BBC America

NEW YORK – March 29, 2024 – AMC Networks today announced that the highly-anticipated drama Orphan Black: Echoes set in the world of Orphan Black and starring Krysten Ritter (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Love and Death), who also serves as executive producer, will premiere Sunday, June 23 on AMC, AMC+ and BBC AMERICA. The announcement was made as part of the celebration of the groundbreaking series, Orphan Black’s 11th anniversary, tomorrow, Saturday, March 30.

Set in the near future, Orphan Black: Echoes takes a deep dive into the exploration of the scientific manipulation of human existence. It follows a group of women as they weave their way into each other’s lives and embark on a thrilling journey, unravelling the mystery of their identity and uncovering a wrenching story of love and betrayal. Ritter plays Lucy, a woman with an unimaginable origin story, trying to find her place in the world. The series also stars Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, It’s A Sin, Line of Duty), Amanda Fix (North of Normal, High School), Avan Jogia (Now Apocalypse, Zombieland: Double Tap), Rya Kihlstedt (A Teacher, One Mississippi) and James Hiroyuki Liao (Barry, The Dropout).

Anna Fishko (Pieces of Her, The Society, Fear the Walking Dead) is creator, writer, showrunner and executive producer of Orphan Black: Echoes with John Fawcett, the co-creator of the original series who also directed 17 episodes across all five seasons, on as director and executive producer. David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers from Boat Rocker on the original Orphan Black series, return as executive producers on the new series. Boat Rocker’s Nick Nantell and Kerry Appleyard will also executive produce, in addition to Katie O’Connell Marsh. Boat Rocker manages the Orphan Black global franchise, including content distribution and consumer products.

Produced by Boat Rocker, and starring Emmy® winner Tatiana Maslany in multiple roles, Orphan Black, became a cult phenomenon with a passionate fanbase known as the “Clone Club.” Superfans are invited to catch up on AMC+ where all five seasons of the original series are available with more fan-focused engagement slated on social channels over the weekend.

Clone Club members are encouraged to follow @OrphanBlack on Twitter and @OrphanBlackTV on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest official news on the Orphan Black universe.

Orphan Black received critical and award acclaim, earning a Peabody Award in 2014 and hailed as “thoroughly impressive, wildly entertaining” by The Hollywood Reporter, and as “a singular accomplishment in drama” by The Daily Beast. The series started on a train platform when a troubled woman, Beth Childs (Maslany), locked eyes with an unknown identical woman, Sarah Manning (Maslany), before jumping to her death. From that day on, they’ve been inextricably linked to a clone conspiracy that has come to rule Sarah’s life. Every twist and turn around the maze of this world has led to a new enemy, a new ally, a new clone and always, new questions. How many of us are out there? Who created us? Who is trying to kill us? The search for these answers have sent Sarah and her newly-found sisters Alison (Maslany), Cosima (Maslany) and Helena (Maslany) crashing head first into some of the most nefarious foes and life revelations they could’ve ever imagined. The cast includes Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Kristian Bruun, Evelyne Brochu, Kevin Hanchard, Ari Millen, Skyler Wexler and Josh Vokey.

Huh.

I’ve kinda kept up with the followon audio stories that are set in the near-term aftermath from the Orphan Black TV series. It looks like this new show is not related to those stories at all, but are also followon, not prequels.

I’ll have to watch for this show, though I’m never clear how to watch BBC or AMC shows. Is this Disney+ because it’s BBC? Or Netflix? Who streams AMC?

That’s one of the few streaming services I don’t have. Even MGM+ is partially available on Prime. And Showtime is through P+. But AMC+? That was a basic cable station, I don’t understand it having its own streaming service just for Breaking Bad and Orphan Black.

I guess the Walking Dead franchise is big enough to make it worthwhile for them.

Not just those two. They've been streaming several shows on AMC+. They tend to schedule things so that new episodes appear on AMC+ (streaming) about a week before they show up on AMC (cable). My wife and I don't have an AMC+ account, so we just watch their programs on the cable channel. The two most recent ones we've watched on it are Dark Winds and Monsieur Spade. And, yes, as Josh said, the Walking Dead franchise is their biggest thing.


As far as BBC America goes, it's counter-intuitive, it's not so much a BBC thing, but it's largely just another American cable network -- it doesn't really show all that much British programming these days -- and is under the AMC Networks umbrella. Adam's top post pretty much gives you the info about AMC, AMC+, and BBC America.

Full Trailer, including our first concrete evidence that this is set in the same world as the original "Orphan Black":


Amanda Fix appears to be playing a younger clone of Ritter's character, or the same model with a later manufacturing date. Based on the framed family photos of Cosima, Mrs. S, Kira and Felix, and Kira and Sarah on her desk, I'm starting to think that this show is set approximately three decades after the original series and that Keeley Hawes is playing a grown up Kira Manning.

I feel like I need to re-watch the original series to get back into the OB scheme of things. The trick is finding the time.

So, I'm struggling with Krysten Ritter as the lead. I don't know why. I like her. But I think Jessica Jones not Orphan Black when I see her. I think I'm struggling to grasp from the trailers how this fits in with Orphan Black the TV series and Orphan Black the podcast serial I've listened to (which follows a few years after the events of the TV show).

I loved Orphan Black and have the Halloween costume to prove it. But I'm not sure I'l going to watch this show. It feels too many years removed, the energy and zeitgeist is lost, and there's so much else I want to watch that I don't have time for.
