We’ve still got a few months to go before season 4 of Orphan Black premieres in April 2016, but the first teaser trailer went up yesterday! While it is definitely very, very brief, it’s certainly enough to whet my appetite until the next trailer drops to the world.
While we left some of our clones in a good place at the end of season 3 (most of them even sat around the table together in a heartwarming and slightly twisted version of a classic family dinner), this teaser looks like it’s partly alluding to the fate of one clone in particular–who was left alive but maybe not well:
As far as the show’s co-creators are concerned, season 4 will be all about returning to themes from very early on in the show. In an interview with Variety earlier this year, John Fawcett spoke briefly about what season 4 will look like:
“I want from season four a vibe of season one again,” Fawcett said. “I want a lot of that paranoia back, and Sarah following a first-person mystery, and a feeling of not knowing where we stand again, and having the audience not know where we stand. When Graeme and I talked about it, it was like, ‘How do we give it a feeling of conclusion after three seasons and now push towards our bigger mystery?’ We just wanted a reset after season three and a big emotional ending.”
Considering the intensity of season 3, I’m intrigued to find out what that means for the overall tone of season 4–and we’ll likely be getting a few more sneak peeks before April comes around.
