The original Orphan Black series, starring Tatiana Maslany, ran for five seasons from 2013 to 2017.

It's not immediately clear how Echoes is connected to its predecessor, but Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett is onboard as director and executive producer.

"For all our dedicated OB fans out there, I am thrilled that we can bring this new chapter to them," Fawcett said in a statement when Echoes was announced. "Without our fans, this new show certainly wouldn't exist and for that I am deeply grateful. I can't wait to 'follow the crazy science' for them!"

Orphan Black: Echoes is expected to hit AMC in 2023.
