Orphan Black Season Two

In my list of the best and worst of 2013, I gave Orphan Black an honorable mention for best television show, only because the last season of Breaking Bad was amazing. If you're not aware of Orphan Black, here's the premise from Rotten Tomatoes

Small-time grifter Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) discovers that she's one of a number of clones. While searching desperately for the others, Sarah finds herself pursued by sinister forces that may hold the key to her existence.

I don't think this premise really does this show justice. Here's the description from IMDB:

Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah. After witnessing a woman's suicide, Sarah assumes the strangers identity - who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman's savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth - she and the dead woman are clones. As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there - genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she'll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one.

Much better! Season two begins on April 19th on BBC America. This is the brand new trailer:

I'm really excited for this show's return. If you haven't seen the first season, it won't take long to get caught up. Season one was only 10 episodes, and that Rotten Tomatoes link above will give you all the information on how to see them. It also looks like BBC America will have an Orphan Black marathon on April 18th and 19th. Enjoy!

Are you also an Orphan Black fan?
