The latest Orphan Black: Echoes images reveal give audiences a peak into what the upcoming Orphan Black spin-off series will be like as it delves even deeper into the exploration of the scientific manipulation of human existence. Set in the near future, Orphan Black: Echoes follows a group of women who weave their way into each other’s lives as they embark on a journey, unraveling the mystery of their identity and uncovering a story of love and betrayal. The series stars Jessica Jones actress Krysten Ritter returning to AMC for the first time since Breaking Bad as a woman named Lucy with an unimaginable origin story, who is trying to find her place in the world.

Maslany played a myriad of different clones that popped up throughout the story during its run. The series had such as loyal fanbase, dubbed the #CloneClub, that when the initial show ended, it continued in a new medium with the Orphan Black: The Next Chapter podcast.
