Orphan Black airs in the US as part of the “Supernatural Saturday” slot BBC America, the cable channel also home to series such as Doctor Who and In the Flesh.
In the UK, the series is broadcast on BBC Three; however, in 2015, the channel is due to close and move online. As with Dominic Mitchell’s In The Flesh — the zombie drama series that stars Luke Newberry — it is yet to be seen what impact that will have on Orphan Black.
