The heavens declare the glory of Orphan Black! By which I mean: Tatiana Maslany, the best actor working in television right now, returns for a brand new season of BBC America’s sci-fi super show this Saturday night (April 18) at 9:00 p.m. To celebrate, I’ve crafted for you a Clone Club Guide to Emojis. I think you will find it very useful!
How psyched are you for the new season of Orphan Black? I AM SO PSYCHED. I’ll be recapping season three right here on Autostraddle dot com, so stay tuned for those shenanigans.

I am so amazingly psyched for this! I had a brief moment of doubt at “the best actor working in television right now” (because Uzo Aduba), but it passed. I am also quivering with anticipating your recaps, because you’re the best recapper working on the interwebs ever.
The clones may be every one of the emoji, but Mona is every one of the clones.
I am getting to know my inner Helena. “You are my candy girl and you got me wanting you…”
My coworkers are probably my seestras who just want me to shut up.
This is genius.
a truly beautiful work of art
Well you’re a genius. <3
Very impressed by this.
I might have readied my phone for the momentous occasion!!
Clone phone case! :D
I see a comment award in your future.
So this is perfect…
Finally got my missus and her best friend into Orphan Black, we (re) watched seasons 1&2 this week and now I neeeeeed a GD UK air date… (Cosima locking Delphine out of the lab emoji)
Can’t wait for recaps.
I don’t think you understand how important this is to me.
I think it is no surprise that the best ones are Allison and Helena. I would also love to see a road trip side story with those two.
Do we know yet whether Tony will be back?
I don’t think we know that for sure, but there have been a few interviews where Tatiana Maslany says she wants him to come back.
This is great, thanks.
This is awesome!!! :-D
I CAN’T WAIT FOR ORPHAN BLACK
and now I really wish I could send tiny pictures of Tatiana Maslany to people in my texts.
also, “best actor working in television right now” = absolute truth
I’ve been painting this dumb beautiful Orphan Black thing for SO FREAKING LONG and it’s done just in time for the season 3 premier. And I’m psyched and nervous for the entire season and that is all.
