The planned series will reportedly take place in the same continuity as the original series but not serve as a sequel or reboot to it, instead focusing on a new cast of characters. Additional details, including the setting and time period are still being kept under wraps.

Orphan Black ran on BBC America for five seasons from 2013 to 2017. Starring Tatiana Maslany, the series followed a young woman who discovers she has been cloned multiple times throughout North America and Europe. The series was created by Graeme Manson (The Bridge) and John Fawcett (Xena: Warrior Princess) and went on to critical acclaim, winning an Emmy for Maslany's performance and a Peabody Award for Excellence in Television in addition to being nominated for a Golden Globe.
