Members of the Clone Club—that is diehard fans of BBC America’s sci-fi drama series Orphan Black—rejoiced when their fearless leader, Tatiana Maslany, finally won her long overdue Emmy Award for the series in 2016. After playing all of those clones, she definitely deserved it.

Maslany anchors Orphan Black as Sarah Manning, a con artist who witnesses the death of her doppelganger and assumes her identity. Soon, Sarah learns that she’s one in a handful of her clones under threat of being killed. Season by season, the case of the clones becomes more complex and intriguing.

In a time when a lot of our programming has been remade from previously successful source material or some other art form, a series as original as Orphan Black has certainly made its mark. With the fifth and final season closing out the series in 2017, catch up with all of the clones in the first four seasons of Orphan Black.

Season 4 was added on March 16 so catch up before the fifth season airs later this year on BBC America.
