Good news for Orphan Black fans – the planned sequel series just moved a step closer to our screens. The yet-untitled show in development at AMC recently landed a writer and executive producer, Anna Fishko.

Fishko already has an established relationship with AMC, as she served as a writer/producer on Fear the Walking Dead. Her other credits include Netflix’s The Society, Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, and FX’s Tyrant.

News of the reported Orphan Black spinoff first arrived in 2019. Now, with a writer/EP on board and a writers’ room open, it finally looks like AMC could get the series off the ground.

Potential plot details about the series have not been released yet. However, we know this series isn’t intended as a reboot of Orphan Black. Instead, it will tell a new story within the same universe as the original series.

The upcoming show comes from Temple Street Productions, who also produced the original series.

Sci-fi thriller Orphan Black premiered in 2013 on BBC America and ran for five seasons. It told the story of Sarah Manning, a woman who discovers she is a clone, and goes on a journey to unite her other clone “sisters” against forces out to kill them. The show starred Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy for her performance in 2016.

At this time, it does not appear Maslany will return to play a significant role in the new Orphan Black spinoff.
