Don’t worry, Sestras! While we’re only scratching the surface of its third season – so you may not have even started worrying yet – there’s officially a lot more we can look forward to: Orphan Black has been renewed!

It’s probably time for another clone dance party, don’t you think?

Yes, our favorite clones (and, well, probably our least favorite clones – I’m looking at you, Castor) will be back for round four next year. The next season will be comprised of ten episodes, airing sometime in 2016. I’ll admit that I would prefer more episodes than that – let’s be honest, there’s never enough of this show – but it’s a huge weight off my mind to know my Sestras will definitely be back!

I have to say, I am shamelessly excited for this. There’s nothing better than female-driven science fiction, in my book, so basically there’s nothing better than Orphan Black. And in addition to the mesmerizing plot, there’s the equally mesmerizing Tatiana Maslany, who (as you’ve probably already heard) plays each and every one of the female clones on this show. And she does it brilliantly, I might add. If you’re not already watching, now is the time to hop on-board the bandwagon.

I know, I know – I probably sound as if I’m trying to bully you into watching it. But you know what?

If you’re one of the smart ones who’s already watching, be sure to tune in this Saturday at 9 PM EST for an all-new episode of BBC America’s Orphan Black! Trust me – this is one you won’t want to miss. The official summary of season three episode four, “Newer Elements of Our Defense,” is officially summarized as follows:

“Mark is taken down in a Prolethean shoot-out and Sarah must step in to help. But as Sarah gathers intel that puts her on the trail of the original Castor DNA, a familiar foe is not far behind. While Helena continues to toil in a faraway military compound, it is ultimately Sarah’s fate that will hang in the balance as she tries to save her sister. Meanwhile, Gracie is cast out from the Prolethean fold, and Alison and Donnie come face-to-face with unhappy drug lord, Jason Kellerman.”

As I said, you won’t want to miss this one!
