We don’t have to worry whether Orphan Black will be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season. When BBC America and Canada’s Space channel renewed the drama for a fifth season, last year, they made it clear it was for a final installment. Showrunner Graeme Manson said that it was a creative decision. Even though it is ending, we’re still tracking the ratings, for a few reasons. It can help predict the likelihood of a spin-off or sequel. It helps us measure the success of other BBC America shows. And, it’s also fun.
A sci-fi thriller series, Orphan Black stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning and the Leda clones. The BBC America cast also includes cast also includes Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Kristian Bruun, Kevin Hanchard, Evelyne Brochu, and Ari Millen. In the fifth and final season, expect a showdown with Rachel (Maslany), who has been out to destroy Sarah and her sestras from the start. With so many lives on the line, Sarah must plot her moves carefully.
Below are the show’s TV ratings, typically the best way to tell if the series will be cancelled or renewed. In this case, the show’s Canadian ratings may have a greater impact on the series’ future. These figures will be updated as the weeks progress.

What do you think? Are you still watching the Orphan Black TV series? Is it ending at the right time, or should it have been renewed for a sixth season?
I just watched all 5 seasons of Orphan Black and I’m very disappointed that they left off at the end of season 5 episode 10 with Sarah wounded and in the woods, and Cosima in a lodge very sick. There was no good ending and leaves me up in the air as who is going to live and whos going to die, and that ***** Rachel moving forward with the stem cells. Boo for not planning a better ending.
Please bring back the show it is my favorite all time show.Love the characters
Soooo glad I stumbled upon this show as I was perusing Amazon Prime for something to watch. BEST SHOW EVER. My family does not exist to me whem I’m tuning into Orphan Black. Please, please renew season after season. I could never get sick of this show. It’s really all I have to look forward to watching.
Just found Orphan Black 3 or 4 weeks ago. Have been binge watching ever since and LOVE IT! Just started season 5 and so disappointed to hear this will be the end. Please continue.
Please bring back the best show ever!

Orphan Black should get more than just one more season! The cast is highly talented! There are still so much more the be told! This show could go on for years! I hate this, you watch a show faithfully attached to the characters and storyline then bam cancellation! Please don’t cancel another great show! Try a different channel, move to Netflix, Amazon, something, this show is too good to be shut down with so much left to answer!
This show is creative at best. The actress is Highly talented and believable with All the characters she portrays. The show deserves another season.
This show could go on for years!! All the really good shows get cancelled just when they get really good. This show should gets good enough ratings to get more than just 5 seasons!! There are still so many secrets and lies that I just don’t see how it can all be told in one more season! Please don’t cancel another great show!!
I have watched every one of the shows in the series and the story isn’t told it needs more of an audience try amc after TWD. This show should belong to the millions of fans out here that would love this show. Please do not end it, it would be such a waste of great talent all the way around. Please get it on another channel!!!!!!!!Thanx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Orphan Black is worthy of more seasons… you have captured something interesting and the characters develop at each and every turn..this show is well put together well done writers.
