Your GIF Guide to the Clone Club Sestras of ORPHAN BLACK

For five seasons we watched the sublime Tatiana Maslany transform herself into our favorite clones on the BBC’s Orphan Black.

Even though Orphan Black reached its television finale in 2017, it’s coming back THIS SUMMER with the official NEXT CHAPTER from Serial Box! The wry Sarah, fierce Helena, strait-laced Alison, clever Cosima and hilarious Felix made so many memorable moments that got us in THE FEELS.
