BBC America announced this weekend at WonderCon that Orphan Black will receive its own “after-show” this season. After the Black, a 30-minute show like The Talking Dead, will air weekly. Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman and Teddy Wilson, hosts of the Space Channel’s series InnerSpace, will serve as hosts interviewing cast and crew with behind the scenes segments and previews of coming episodes.
BBC America also revealed the winning poster created by a fan for the fourth season:
New characters this season include:
M.K. (Tatiana Maslany). The newly discovered clone that lives off the grid, is hiding from Neolution. Having retreated from society, she sought out an online community among other hackers. She rarely meets face-to-face and on the off chance she does, she prefers to hide behind a sheep mask. But M.K. knows a lot more than her clone sisters and may hold pertinent information that could reveal answers to their burning questions.
Evie Cho (Jessalyn Wanlim). Evie is Neolution’s new corporate face selling their vision to the public. A powerful, seductively articulate bioengineer that preaches empowerment to those oppressed by sexism and physical ailments, she believes in eugenics — bettering the human race through intervention. Born with a genetic disorder, Evie despises the current bioethical laws that constrain her research. As a result, Evie believes great discoveries require casualties — a belief she’s prepared to viciously defend.
Dizzy (Joel Thomas Hynes). Dizzy is a hacker that doesn’t conform to group mentality. Intrinsically skeptical, he never believes things are as they appear. He lives half his life online — scouring forums for secretive data only disclosed anonymously — and skirts around the edges of underground movements, gleaning information from within. Obsessed with uncovering current conspiracies, Dizzy is about to slam head first into the most confounding one of all.
Detective Duko (Gord Rand). Less the wolf in sheep’s clothing, and more the rat in gerbil’s, he’s a mid-level player in Neolution who takes orders from Evie Cho. Responsible for giving them cover from the police, Neolution’s recent technological developments has him covering up more bodies than ever, which is raising suspicions with more than just the police force.
Here’s a great feature on our own favorite clone, Helena, and several previews and promos from BBC America for the coming season:
