Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy® for her ability to seamlessly shift personalities as various clones in Orphan Black, narrates the new episodic series. Orphan Black: The Next Chapter takes place eight years after the show's finale, and brings beloved favorites together with new characters to stop the onset of an impeding global disaster.

About Orphan Black: The Next Chapter:
Two years after the show went off the air, Orphan Black (BBC America and Boat Rocker Media) is back with The Next Chapter, which picks up the story eight years in the future and features many of the same characters. The show wrapped with the destruction of the clone program, Project Leda. Since their victory, the sestras-Sarah, Alison, Cosima, and those they love, have been free to live quiet, anonymous lives. But the cost has been high. All of them are living less-than-full lives in order to protect themselves and each other. Everything changes when the sestras discover that there are more clones out there.
