Clone Club is almost back in session! As we await the premiere of Season 2 of Orphan Black on Saturday April 19, we’ve been refreshing our minds on the incredible first season and finding everything we can about what’s in store for Sarah, Allison, Cosima and the other clones. Here’s what we learned from a recent TVLine interview about the upcoming season.
Light spoilers ahead!
“Season 1 was conception. Season 2 is evolution.”
Now that we have gotten to know the core clones — Sarah, Alison, Cosima — expect to see the story get much bigger and potentially more complicated. According to show co-creators Graeme Manson, this season is all about “evolution.” Hmm... perhaps you meant “neolution”?
Sarah hits the reset button.
When we met Sarah in the series premiere, she was on the run, and it looks like we find her in a similar place at the start of Season 2. What has changed, however, is that we care about her. “Now we know her. Now we’re invested in her, but she’s the same person,” Graeme explains. “Nowhere to turn to, no money in her pockets, and she’s lost her daughter.”
Another difference? Sarah has more friends now than she did at the start. “There’s also a [powerful] theme of being stronger together than divided,” Graeme says of the upcoming season.
Felix and Sarah’s bond is “tested.”
The show’s primary comic relief (other than Alison, that is), seems to have a lot going on this season as one of the series few characters not played by Tatiana Maslany. “His relationships are tested in a huge [way],” says Jordan Gavaris, who plays Fee. It sounds like
“They all come to a head, and he has some really big decisions to make. He forms new bonds and relationships outside of Clone Club and forms new allegiances where maybe they’re allies, maybe they’re enemies.” Intriguing!
