Variety reports AMC is developing a new TV show based on the BBC America series. Each of its five seasons were showered with accolades by critics; Maslany scored well-deserved Emmy nominations for her lead performance no fewer than three times, taking home the trophy in 2016. While the new show won't be a sequel or a reboot per se, it will be set in the same universe as the original and feature an all-new story. Producers are now seeking a writer for the series and will be bringing in people to pitch different takes on the show. AMC declined to comment.
Orphan Black producer Temple Street Productions is said to be on board with the concept and will meet with writers to suss out the scope of the story. Also open to question is whether the show would air on BBC America, AMC, or both (as Killing Eve will for its upcoming season 2), but, hey, it wouldn't truly be Orphan Black without questions wrapped in enigmas wrapped in mysteries.
As blackout eases, Venezuela braces for rival rallies
Maduro accused the opposition, led by Juan Guaido , of orchestrating the attack on Venezuela's power supply system. For six weeks now, Venezuelans have had their allegiances tested by two men who claim to be the president.
Then there's the issue of the starring cast. As the sci-fi show progressed, the plotline followed Sarah Manning as she tracked down her many clones and attempted to uncover the truth behind the secretive science experiments that created them. It appears that the cable channel is searching for another big genre hit as the hype around The Walking Dead fizzles, and Orphan Black's small but devout fanbase might be able to provide that. The producers are now looking for a writer, but it's interesting that it's being developed at AMC instead of at BBC America.
Nothing solid is out there yet about Orphan Black's new spin-off, but check back here for updates.
