'Orphan Black' Will Most Likely End After Season Five

'Orphan Black' Will Most Likely End After Season Five

It has only been a few days since the third season of Tatiana Maslany‘s hit show Orphan Black premiered, but it seems there is already a series finale date in sight.

Series co-creator John Fawcett just opened up to E! News about his plans to end the show after five seasons.

“The series is mapped to a large degree, in that there is always room to move and work organically, but we are working towards a five season story,” John said. “We will arrive at some kind of end destination by the end of season five.”

“I think we want to wrap this story up by the end of season five,” he continued. “And then if there are still a lot of fans and a lot of desire to see this show after that, I think there would be some reinvention necessary or some kind of new spin. I don’t know what that is or could be. I’m not really thinking about that right now, I’m just thinking about trying to get this story told in five seasons.”

ARE YOU SAD that there might only be five seasons of Orphan Black?

    Very sad but better to wrap up strong.

    5 seasons is a great run. And it’s always reassuring when the show creators know where they’re going to conclude the story.

    I’ll be very sad when it’s over, but it’s better to wrap it up at the top of your game than watching a show you love going downhill.

  • Sasha.K

    Love this show… the two seasons were so good. Hope the third one is good as well.

  • Sasha.K

    That’s true because in the beginning it’s very interesting and new with the clones, but if the writing is not good it will for sure go downhill.

    Five seasons is a pretty good run! I’d rather they wrap up as strong as they started rather than drag on and on.

    I understand why they need an end game….but at the same time, reading this makes me want to hit someone.
