Watch the Cryptic First Teaser for Orphan Black Season 4, Plus Details on the New Clone
We finally have our first teaser for the fourth season of Orphan Black, and it's just as creepy and weird as we could hope for:



This tiny snippet is likely not even from the season itself, but promotional material for the season that reveals Rachel's fate. Last season, we saw that she survived her infamous encounter with a pencil, but lost her eye in the process. Now, it seems that she's getting a brand-new shiny mechanical eye, and hopefully will recover from her frontal lobe trauma as well. She's better at being the proclone we love to hate when she has her wits about her.

In other Orphan Black news, season four will introduce a new clone named M.K., a Deep Throat-esque informant described as a "slightly traumatized clone who has a deep past."

Orphan Black season 4

Opening quote
"She comes out of the shadows and for the first time we're meeting someone who knows more than us," co-creator Graeme Manson told EW. "Sarah is meeting a clone who has got more answers than she does, and yet she's a slippery character."
Closing quote

According to co-creator John Fawcett, M.K. has been self-aware for longer than any of the other clones we've met (although it's unclear if that includes Rachel, who grew up knowing that she was a clone):

Opening quote
"[M.K. is] very elusive. And quite highly skilled and very smart. And it is interesting as Sarah tries to interact with this character who is almost kind of like a Deep Throat kind of character. What's very cool about it is this is a clone who has been self-aware for some time... And is helpful in some ways to Sarah, but there is a little bit of a dangerous side to M.K. as well. So she is this really fun new character that we're going to see in season 4.
Closing quote

It seems that M.K., who wears a sheep mask as a nod to Dolly the Sheep, will play a huge role in the next season, and particularly in the relationship between Sarah and her sister clones:

Opening quote
"She's very paranoid. She's very security conscious. She knows more than Sarah does so she knows how dangerous the whole thing is. She's purposefully avoided contact with the sisters to keep herself safe, and Sarah is now trying to draw her out of the shadows and trying to utilize the information that she has so that Sarah can follow her own mystery and fill in the blanks and protect Alison and protect Cosima from Neolution. But this girl is very unwilling."

Orphan Black season four premieres in April 2016 on BBC.
