    Season 3 would be perfect but no more afterwards if the scripts are not up to it. There is nothing worse that a series being chopped when it has run out of steam.

    Please please renew it and have a definite final series with a clear ending. It’s a brilliant series, and I’m fed up with them being axed just as they get going (for financial reasons???? despite top ratings amongst others).
    A third series is just about right, but more would be too much. So end a series with a plan this time.

    Don’t cancel it… people pay enough for tv license; there is no point in this if there’s nothing decent on.

    Please renew what I consider the best show on television. I vary rarely watch TV and when my friend recommended this to me I had no idea I would be so hooked after 1 episode that I spent an entire day watching the first season. So not me. But it is amazing! !!

    I wonder what BBC America is waiting for? Are they going to reveal they’ve renewed the series right after the cliffhanger (?) ending to the finale tomorrow night? The show is a hit, Maslany just won her second Critics Choice award, and what else does BBCA have to replace a show like this. Not only that but the writers have consistently said they have a 3 year plan for the show. It might not be a ratings hit, but what exactly is BBCA looking for in terms of ratings. It’s never going to get Doctor Who numbers but looking at the chart, I’d say these ratings have been consistent.

    My favorite show, and it has everyone talking and thinking. Renew is a no brainer! This is one of those great projects that does well, but is also brilliant and interesting and artistic, and those are rare.

    this always happens in tv… you get into a show, you cant wait to see the next one then POOF its gone….renew its a good show. bloody good idea as well to be fair.. the dynamics between all the clones is great.. the fact that they can be one another at the drop of a hate has huge potential..

    so yeah keep up the good work man..

    This is one of the best series ever, I’d go as far as to say that it’s at the same level than the first seasons of Lost and Game of Thrones (even if it doesn’t have as much production behind). A brilliant script and brilliant actors, to cancel it would be to make the biggest mistake one could imagine in the TV business.

    Don’t make the biggest mistake in the stories of the tv show, Don’t cancel it. I watch a lot of series and like a lot too but this one is different , it’s a new concept no one have the ideas like that before. Orphan black is the better tv show I ever seen. And the actors are exceptional. And I know that comment don’t change anythings and I know it’s just One series on a millions but even if I’m french, even if I’m not older That serie is amazing it’s like my sun in my dark Days so pleas don’t cancel it :)

    PS: Sorry for my English, like I said, I’m a younger french =)

    Remarkable series, unique, fast paced. Great actors and the whole concept is what makes it all the more fun to watch…..I cannot wait for season 3 Please don’t cut us off without an ending. This series can bring us along with each of the “sister” and we want to know what happens to all of them !

    I hope it is nominated, it surely deserves an award.

    We watched Orphan Black from the very first episode, season one – not really knowing what to expect. Took about three episodes to hook us completely. We’ve since re-watched from the beginning a few times over so definitely BBC must bring this one back!!
