The universe of Orphan Black just may be spawning a companion show for the brilliant tale of clone “sestrahood”.

News is slight currently, however Variety reports that one of their sources says that the show is very much a goer.

In what comes as a relief, the series – being developed by AMC – is not to be a reboot or remake, but simply set in the same world as Orphan Black.

There’s no word at all on casting as yet, so we’re not sure whether Tatiana Maslany, who made the original series so very special by expertly playing several different women, will return. We will, however, be keen to hear updates.

While we wait, here’s a reminder of the original series – and it’s the first season trailer, so as to not spoil anything for those who may be late to this excellent series:
