Orphan Black co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett have teased new details on the clone drama’s upcoming second season.
Here’s a taste of what the pair revealed to Huff Post TV about Season 2 at the recent Comic-Con.
On how Season 2 might differ to the first chapter:
Fawcett: “In Season 1, we were like, ‘Here’s the plot! Here’s the mystery!’ And then [we were] trying to do as much character stuff as we could along the way. You wind up falling in love with the characters, [and in Season 2], I just want less plot. Can we just have more character stuff? Like, funny stuff with Alison and Felix? It is kind of my instinct to give the audience a little bit more breathing room sometimes, to just enjoy, like, the fact that the clones are really fun to hang out with.”
Manson: “And yet we don’t want to lose the pace.”
On the possibility of introducing new non-Tatiana Maslany-flavored clones?
Not yet but possibly further down the road. “We’ve got some space to explore” before another group of clones enters the fray, Manson admitted.
On whether viewers will ever meet Sarah’s parents:
Manson: “It’s not necessarily ‘the parents,’ it’s ‘Where did the genetic material come from?’ Because you don’t need an original.”
