It's time for a Clone Club dance party!

Orphan Black has officially been renewed for a third season by BBC America, the network announced on Wednesday. Set to go into production this September in Toronto, the Tatiana Maslany-starrer will return with 10 episodes in Spring 2015.

Also renewed by BBC America? British drama Broadchurch, starring David Tennant, which will return for a second season in 2015. And the series' star will definitely have his hands full as he's also starring in the American adaptation of BroadchurchGracepoint, which debuts this fall on Fox, and finds the Doctor Who star playing the same character, opposite Anna Gunn and minus the British accent. (Got all that?)

As for what fans can look forward to in Orphan Black's third season, after the revelation in the finale that there are also male clones (Ari Millen, prepare for a whole lot more scenes!), co-creator John Fawcett previewed, "I think we're going to see obviously some of the new things we've set in motion, like Project Castor, with our male clones, and with the hope that the science with the synthetic sequences may aid us in our final answers."

Co-creator Graeme Manson added, "I think the fans can look forward to sort of the same fast-paced show that you watch on the edge of your seat, and now we've got this added element of the boys against the girls."

After the sci-fi drama attracted a rapid following, Orphan Black's second season debuted to 1.24 million viewers, while the finale hit a series high in the live-plus-seven numbers, bringing in 1.4 million viewers.
