The second season of BBC America’s “Orphan Black” has finally headed into production. The network announced the beginning of Season 2’s shooting schedule in a press release.
The new season will begin with Sarah “in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler),” the plot synopsis reads. “Her scorched earth tactics spark a war with pro-clone, Rachel (also played by Tatiana Maslany), dividing and imperiling all the clones. As Sarah discovers more about her past, mysterious newcomers appear, but can they be trusted?”
Reprising their roles in Season 2 are Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce and Maria Doyle Kennedy. BBC American promises more casting announcements are on the way in the coming weeks.
“We know where we’re going with our mystery in a broad and general sense. We love our cliffhangers, at the end of episodes and the end of acts,” co-showrunner John Fawcett told Zap2it at Comic-Con. “We knew what we were building to, we knew a lot of the elements for the climax of the season. We really liked putting Sarah back where we met her. She’s on the run, she hasn’t got her daughter and she’s got a pocket full of change. We’re gonna pick up Season 2 pretty much where we found her in Season 1.”
