BBC America Sets Premiere Date for Final Season of 'Orphan Black'

BBC America has today announced the premiere date for the fifth and final season of original drama series Orphan Black starring Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany.

The 10-episode final season will start on Saturday, June 10 at 10/9c.

The drama stars Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Kevin Hanchard, Evelyne Brochu, Ari Millen, Kristian Bruun, Josh Vokey and Maria Doyle Kennedy.

Graeme Manson and John Fawcett created the drama. They executive produce with Kerry Appleyard, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg. Temple Street Productions and Bell Media produce for BBC America.

This is the latest a season of Orphan Black has aired in the calendar year. And for those who care about such things, it also means Maslany won't be eligible for the 2017 Emmy Awards. She won for Lead Actress in a Drama Series last year after her second nomination in the category. So, she'll have to wait until 2018 to potentially repeat.
