Tatiana Maslany freaks us out in the fourth season of "Orphan Black." What else is new?



You're welcome for the nightmares induced by that photo.

I wish I could tell you what's going on in that image, but you'll just have to wait for the Orphan Black season 4 premiere on Thursday at 9 p.m. That's right, the show moved from Saturday nights to Thursday nights. The reason? My guess is the network hopes more people record the show and watch over the weekend.

And also new this year, BBC America added an after-show series, After the Black, immediately following each episode at 11 p.m. So, #CloneClub, get ready for more discussion to keep track of our seestras. Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman and Teddy Wilson will host the 30-minute shows that will feature cast, crew and special guest appearances.

Orphan Black follows a group of female clones, all played by Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress Tatiana Maslany. And this season, it seems we have to go back to go forward. Many fans criticized the show for expanding the Black world too far, and not staying with our core group, who we grew to love. Dyad Institute? Freaky Leekies? Proleathans? Castor? Leda? Talking scorpions? Okay, that last one was kinda great.

But it seems the showrunners John Fawcett and Graeme Manson listened.

Sarah returns from Iceland to track down a new clone tied to Beth, the one who killed herself in the series premiere. Sarah and her sisters band together to uncover Beth's backstory. We know who the clones are, who created them and who was trying to destroy them. But what if that was all a ruse? What if there's a different story?

My only hope this season: more Krystal.

I'll be recapping the 10-episode season right here each week. Until then, BBC America released the first four minutes of the premiere episode:
