Report: ‘Orphan Black’ Universe New TV Series in Development at AMC

Time to get the Clone Club back together!

According to a report from Variety, it sounds like AMC is looking at developing a new series based in the Orphan Black world from the BBC series starring Tatiana Maslany as [SPOILER].

The outlet says a source informed them about the project, which will NOT be a continuation, sequel, or prequel to the original BBC series, but rather a new story set within the same world.

It sounds like original series production company Temple Street Productions is on board for the AMC version.

That’s sort of all we know at this point, but we’ll let you know if/when AMC and/or Temple Street officially comments on the news.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.


Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
