Orphan Black co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson love talking cryptically about their fan favorite BBC America show — even when they're just stating the obvious, we can't help but read into potential teases. Watch the video interview (above) to see what we mean.
"At the very end of Season 2 we introduced Project Castor," Manson said. "Where did these boys come from? What do they want? And why won't they leave Sarah Manning alone? I think that's going to be one of our most interesting journeys this year."
Fawcett agreed, calling the Project Castor revelation "a big piece of the puzzle" regarding Sarah continuing to discover her origins in Season 3.
What does it all mean? We'll have to wait until the new season premieres in 2015 to find out, but in the meantime there was some more to dish about Season 2. Apparently there was a whole Allison-Donnie storyline that had to be cut from the finale, and it all ended with a Donnie-Rachel showdown. We'd totally pay to see that, and now we can — it's all included in bonus footage on the Season 2 DVD/Blu-ray.
The Orphan Black panel at Comic-Con got a bit emotional when a fan thanked them all for helping her come out to her parents, and while that left an impression on everyone, the co-creators were happy to see something else at Comic-Con as well: People dressed up as all of the clones and characters on the show.
"This year it's multipled 10-fold," Fawcett said of the Comic-Con fan love. "Because of the success of last year, we kind of designed a few cool new clone looks that the fans could embrace for cosplay this year."
"Helena in the wedding dress, we were going, 'This would be good at Comic-Con,'" Manson said with a laugh. "We've seen a few Helena bloody wedding dresses so far," Fawcett added. "We've seen every clone. And we've seen Donnie with a turnip on his head," Manson chimed in. And that, Clone Club, is what we call perfect.
Orphan Black Season 2 is available now on Blu-ray and DVD; Season 3 will premiere in 2015 on BBC America.
