“Orphan Black” is moving into more competitive territory. BBC America’s drama has occupied the Saturday night time slot for three years. However, the show will move to a weeknight in April. A new trailer revealed the program is also switching time slots.
“Orphan Black” Season 4 premieres Thursday, April 14, at 10 p.m. EST. It’ll be up against broadcast shows like ABC’s “The Catch,” a new Shonda Rhimes-produced drama, and CBS’ "Sherlock" adaptation, “Elementary.” The new trailer makes it seem like the show has plenty of drama to pull their viewers over to their new night.
The video shows Sarah’s (Tatiana Maslany) daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler), and it seems like viewers will get a look inside of her head this season. “They never tell me when things are bad,” she says in a voiceover. “I always know.”
It looks like Kira’s mother and the rest of the clones will be in trouble again, but it’s Cosima (Maslany) who seems to be in a fragile state. She’ll realize that Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) is in danger. In the finale, Delphine was shot in the stomach, but it isn’t clear if it was fatal. “I need you to tell me that Delphine is alive,” Cosima tells someone.
This is the first promo video to show several clips of new footage. Last year, a short teaser was released showing a bionic eye that may or may not belong to Rachel (Maslany). The villainous clone appears in this clip rocking a new, white eye patch and a glimpse of the new clone, Lucy, who wears a sheep mask, is also shown. Watch the new “Orphan Black” Season 4 trailer below:
Though she isn’t in the video, much of the fourth season will focus on Beth (Maslany). “The new season sees Sarah (Maslany) returning home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive new ally tied to deceased clone Beth (Maslany), whose identity Sarah stole in the series’ first episode,” the official synopsis reveals. “With the stakes higher than ever before, Sarah and her sisters band together to uncover the missing chapter of the clone conspiracy – following Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent enemy who holds the key to their survival.”
“Orphan Black” Season 4 returns Thursday, April 14, at 10 p.m. EST on BBC America.
