Orphan Black‘s executive producers talk story lines, secrets and what makes them excited about Season 2.
We have been waiting a long time — too long — and now, less than a month away from the Orphan Black Season 2 premiere, executive producers John Fawcett and Graeme Manson tease us with a few snippets of what’s to come. It’s torture — we can’t wait to watch, it looks so awesome.
Season 2 will pick up with Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) trying to find her daughter, Kira. This is going to put her in a difficult position and she’ll have to go up against pro-clone Rachel. Cosima will also have a tough journey ahead as she deals with being sick.
However, it looks like the most entertaining story line is going to be Alison’s. At least that’s how Fawcett and Manson seem to feel. In the video Fawcett jokes, “Every time Graeme and I get together and talk about Alison’s story lines for Season 2, we laugh hysterically. We get a lot of dark comedy, paranoia and suburban shenanigans out of Alison.”
Alison’s clumsy comedy relief will be welcome in a season that is bound to be intense. Cosima’s story will be a bit darker as she’s in a “tough place” dealing with her illness. She also knows that now isn’t the time to get sidetracked. Instead she needs to stay focused and get a plan.
As for Sarah, well, “she’s gonna bring the heat and bring the pain.” And she completely looks like a bada** in the preview, kicking through walls and running like she’s up for a gold medal. With Sarah on the run, it also allows the show to branch out of its usual scenery and take the characters into uncharted territory. This will certainly allow for new foes and possibly new friends to emerge.
The wait is almost over. Orphan Black Season 2 premieres April 19 on BBC America.
