Based on BBC America’s just-released photos, the final season of “Orphan Black” is going to be an emotional ride. Series star Tatiana Maslany won an Emmy Award last year for Best Drama Actress for her roles as the various clones, and while she’s out of contention at this year’s kudos because Season 5 doesn’t premiere until June 10, she’ll surely be a frontrunner in 2018. Click through our “Orphan Black” Season 5 photo gallery above to see the entire cast in action one last time.
On Thursday, Maslany will be joined by the full cast and co-creators at PaleyFest 2017 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to talk about the show’s final season. For fans attending, we recommend you bring your tissues as it’s bound to be an emotional night for everyone involved.

Protecting both her families, and the host of clones she’s yet to meet, Sarah and those still fighting the fight will uncover the missing pieces of the insidious conspiracy – and finally learn the story behind their origin. Despite the great risk, the fight of her life will either set her and her sestras free, or see them meet their end…
