If you’re a fan of the Canadian TV drama Orphan Black, you have plenty to be thankful for these days. The second season recently wrapped up, and a third season has been greenlit for release in 2015. And now we’ve learned that the mythology of Orphan Black will be expanding into other media.
IDW announced during Comic-Con that they’ve acquired the rights to produce an Orphan Black comic book. While the creative team have yet to be revealed, IDW said that they’re working closely with the show’s producers to take advantage of the storytelling possibilities afforded by the show’s second season.
For those who don’t follow Orphan Black, the show stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning, a con-artist who witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes the dead woman’s identity and career as a police detective in order to investigate the mystery. Manning discovers she is one of many clones caught up in a vast conspiracy. It’s unclear right now whether the comic will also star Manning, or if IDW will focus on other areas of the Orphan Black mythos.
“Orphan Black, in addition to being a captivating TV series, is a perfect premise for comics,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall in the company’s press release. “And as the second season has expanded the series in exciting new directions, that has only increased the amount of stories we’ll be able to tell in comic-book form.”
Orphan Black #1 will be released at some point in early 2015.
