Orphan Black Begins Production on Season 3

OB-S3ProductionOrphan Black season 3 kickoff selfie!

Welcome back to the trip, #CloneClub. Production on the third season of Orphan Black is officially underway. Here's what we know so far about the upcoming season, due to return to BBC AMERICA in Spring 2015:

Season three plunges the clone sisterhood into unexpected territory with the realization that they’re not alone.  Just when they thought they knew their enemies and allies, season three reveals our clones are more vulnerable than ever before. Highly trained, identical male-soldiers raise more questions than answers. Who are these new clones? Who created them? And more importantly, why do they exist? Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena are stronger together than they are apart, but this season will put that bond to the test. Will they forge towards their truth, or fall at the feet of those who seek to control them?

Returning in a lead role is Ari Millen, who plays the newly discovered male clones – Mark, the Prolethean cult follower and Rudy, a prisoner of war. Also back this season is Jordan Gavaris as Sarah’s fiery foster brother Felix, Dylan Bruce as Paul, an army officer working for secret forces in the clone world, Maria Doyle Kennedy as Sarah and Felix’s duplicitous foster mother Mrs. S, Kristian Bruun as Donnie, Alison's husband, Evelyne Brochu as Dyad Scientist and Cosima’s lover Delphine, Kevin Hanchard as Art, a detective caught in the clone trap, Michiel Huisman as Cal, father to Sarah’s daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler) and Zoé De Grand Maison as Gracie, a Prolethean escapee.  Additional casting for the series will be announced in the coming weeks.

Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett took to Twitter to kick off the new season with some celebratory selfies! Graeme and John also taped a special message to fans during Orphan Black's inaugural read-through:
