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. Not only was the plot incredibly addicting, but the depths of the characters pulled us in and took us along for the ride. 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. Get ready for the new series with this guide to the Sestras with some of their best quotes from the show, and let us know in the comments if we missed any of your favorites!
