It’s not quite Season 6, but it’ll do.
If you’re still mourning the loss of Clone Club, we’ve got good news — IGN can exclusively reveal that IDW Publishing is launching a new Orphan Black sequel comic that picks up right where Season 5 left off, with Cosima and Delphine traveling the globe to cure the other 274 sick Leda clones. Over the course of their journey, they’ll fall deeper in love, and deeper into a mysterious agenda which threatens to tear apart their noble mission, and their hearts.
The six-issue miniseries will be written by Heli Kennedy with art by Fico Ossio (Transformers vs. Visionaries), and will debut in June 2018.
Check out the cover for the first issue below.
“I’m so excited to send Cosima and Delphine around the world. A scientist-superhero couple, saving clones in amazing locations — I couldn’t ask for much more, story-wise,” Kennedy says. “And I can’t wait to delve into who they are, outside of science. Both as a couple and individuals. Their intense love-work relationship is the perfect ‘in’ to explore their dreams, fears, families, the skeletons they keep hidden…all the good, challenging bits of a complicated relationship.”
And rest assured, Cosima’s sestras will also make an appearance, Kennedy says: “With 274 Ledas to find and cure, Cosima (and the old sestras) will definitely find themselves entangled in an international mystery. All this is definitely a balancing act for the couple. But ‘Cophine’ wants it ALL — science and love. Though it’s, like, utterly crazy, I can’t tell you how awesome it is to sit down at my computer each day for a nice cup of Cophine (so sorry…couldn’t help myself).”
