Jessica Jones lead Krysten Ritter has been cast in AMC’s Orphan Black sequel series, Orphan Black: Echoes.
The blurb on Variety reads:
Set in the near future, Orphan Black: Echoes takes a deep dive into the exploration of the scientific manipulation of human existence. It follows a group of women as they weave their way into each other’s lives and embark on a thrilling journey, unravelling the mystery of their identity and uncovering a wrenching story of love and betrayal.
Ritter will play Lucy, described as a woman with an unimaginable origin story, trying to find her place in the world.
Orphan Black: Echoes already has a 10-episode order at AMC and is expected to air in 2023. Anna Fishko (Fear the Walking Dead) will serve as showrunner, whilst original creator John Fawcett (Ginger Snaps) will executive produce and direct.
