Take a look at the trailer for ‘Orphan Black: Echoes’ on Stan.
Orphan Black: Echoes is set in the same universe as the critically acclaimed TV series Orphan Black, which ran for five seasons from 2013 through to 2017.
Along with being beloved by fans, the show was also a strong awards show contender throughout its run, even winning a Peabody Award in 2013. The show’s lead actress, Tatiana Maslany, also won a Primetime Emmy Award and two Critics’ Choice Television Awards for her performance in Orphan Black, in which she played multiple characters across the seasons.
In the original series, we are introduced to Sarah Manning (Maslany), a British con artist living in Toronto who one day comes across a woman who looks exactly like her, about to end her life. Sarah then discovers that she is a clone and there are many different versions of ‘her’ out in the world, all in danger from the same organisation.
While the original Orphan Black is an excellent series, and I highly recommend you watch it at some stage, you don’t need to have watched it in order to enjoy Orphan Black: Echoes on Stan, as this new phase of the story very much stands on its own as a compelling series.
Orphan Black: Echoes is an action-packed ride from start to finish, with each episode in the series allowing viewers to unravel a little more of the mystery. But just when you think you really know what is happening within the world of Orphan Black: Echoes, another plot twist will be thrown your way and soon you discover that there’s much more to this story than just a machine that is ‘printing out’ humans.
