Sarah (played by the mercurial Tatiana Maslany) returns home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive new ally tied to deceased clone Beth, whose identity Sarah stole in the series’ first episode. With the stakes higher than ever before, Sarah and her sestras 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.

The clones are back in town … or soon will be anyway!
Season 4 is fast approaching and with it a whole lot more drama, discovery and emotional angst for everyone’s favourite band of dysfunctional clones who have, over the course of three riveting, intelligently-wrought seasons, forged themselves into a formidably strong family of seestras.
But as these photos show, it’s not just Sarah who has her hands full.
Alison is juggling wine o’clock, guns and body bags, never an easy combination at the best of times let’s face it – I know we’re not not supposed to play favourites but Alison is totally my favourite and I have the Funko Pop figure to prove it – Helena is preparing for motherhood with Alison’s hubby Donnie (Kristian Bruun) by her side – I can’t wait to see her at a playgroup! – Cosima is looking for assurance that Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) lives, Felix (Jordan Gavaris) gets back in the game at a nightclub and Rachel remains, ahem, a tad one-eyed.
Oh and there are enemies aplenty, among them the ruthlessly, brutally pragmatic Ferdinand (James Frain), who will stop at nothing to keep their hands on a whole world of secrets.
It’s war as Mrs S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) sagely notes in the gravest of tones, and everything once again is on the line.
As always though it’s the humanity of the clones themselves, all portrayed with astonishing wit, power and distinction by Tatiana Maslany, that is the bedrock of Orphan Black, women (and men) who simply want to be treated as the people they are, and not commodities to be traded to the highest bidder.
We will witness the next chapter in their battle for the right to exist on their own terms when Orphan Black season 4 premieres 14 April on BBC America.
