Amazon has added another exclusive hit series to its streaming service Amazon Prime Instant Video int he form of BBC America's Orphan Black.
Orphan Black has only had one season so far, but thanks to the stand out performance from lead actress Tatiana Maslany, it has already shot up to a lot of critical acclaim. The series is a sci-fi mystery about a woman who was adopted and comes to find out she was actually part of a mysterious cloning experiment and that she is one of several copies. Maslany plays each of the clones with distinct personalities and quirks, and this is what led to her receiving the attention of critics and awards shows alike.
The statement from Amazon today announces that the first season and all future seasons will now be streaming exclusively on the Amazon Prime Instant Video service. "Orphan Black is exactly the type of smart, suspenseful TV show that our customers love to binge on," said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. "It's easy to see why Tatiana Maslany was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Orphan Black. We're excited to offer the first and future seasons exclusively to Prime members at no additional cost, continuing our tradition of offering a wide variety of great content we know our customers will enjoy."
The first season is available now, which is perfect timing for those who wish to catch up before the second season debuts on April 19.
