‘Orphan Black’ Renewed for Season 3

BBC America has renewed its drama hit “Orphan Black” for a third season.

BBC America general manager Perry Simon confirmed the news — which was hardly a surprise — in his opening remarks Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

Lensing on 10 new episodes starring Tatiana Maslany in multiple roles is to begin again in the fall. The third season will bow on the cabler in spring 2015. The second season of “Broadchurch” will also hit the cabler in early 2015, Simon said.

The original “Broadchurch” mini, a grim mystery revolving around the murder of a boy, has been adapted by Fox as “Gracepoint,” which is expected to air in the fall.

The second round of “Broadchurch” will feature a new story. Actors David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill will reprise their roles; Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, Eve Myles and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are new to the cast.

BBC America talked up two other new series, “Tatau” and “The Last Kingdom,” coming for 2015.
