Orphan Black

BBC America

Send in the clones one final time: Orphan Black has been renewed for a fifth and final season.

BBC America announced the end of the Tatiana Maslany-fronted series on the day of the season four finale. The 10-episode final season will air in 2017.

"Orphan Black is a thrilling, genre-bending ride that has captured our fans' imaginations and hearts like no other show. Our genius team of actors, writers and producers have, time after time, taken us to a place of awe, delight and utter shock and surprise," Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America, said in a statement. "Tatiana has been and continues to be a complete revelation, hers is one of the most remarkable performances on television, and she is joined by an extraordinary cast.  We can't wait to take our incredibly passionate audience on one final gobsmacking clone adventure."

Maslany received an Emmy nomination for her many roles on the series. She took home two Critics' Choice Awards and a TCA Award for the series as well. The cast also includes Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Kristian Bruun, Skyler Wexler, Kevin Hanchard, Ari Millen, Evelyne Brochu and Josh Vokey.

"We are excited to deliver an epic conclusion to the tale of Sarah and her clone sisters. The past four seasons have been a phenomenal adventure and we are eternally grateful to our loyal fans who have loved the twists and thrills of our weird little show," John Fawcett and Graeme Manson, co-creators of the series, said in a joint statement. "We are thankful to our partners at Temple Street, and to BBC America and Space for their support and giving us the opportunity to end on a high."

Orphan Black wraps up its fourth season on Thursday, June 16 at 10 p.m. on BBC America.
