We officially call this meeting of the Clone Club into order!

Orphan Black, aka the most buzzed-about TV show of the year, made its Comic-Con debut on Friday, hosting a panel that included breakout star (and ridiculously Emmy-snubbed) Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris and Dylan Bruce, as well as showrunner Graeme Manson.

And being the ridiculously awesome show that it is, Orphan Black came ready to dish on season two, including when fans can expect the BBC drama to return...but fans might not like the answer!

Orphan Black, and Maslany's many beloved clones, will return for its ten-episode second season in April 2014, with production starting up again on Sept. 23. So yes, that's an eight-month wait. Go on, take a minute to cry/scream/punch a pillow. We'll wait. 

At least we were given some juicy scoop to make up for the clone drought we're about to experience: Executive producer John Fawcett revealed it's likely Maslany will be playing even more characters next season, saying, "We do like our clones! I don't think anyone would be surprised if we unveiled a couple of new clones in season two. I don't think that's letting the cat out of the bag too much."

The producers also addressed the possibility of doing a Beth-centric flashback episode, you know, prior to her jumping in front of a train in the pilot. Fawcett revealed the writers have had that discussion, but added, "I don't know if you're going to see it in season two."
