Orphan Black Season 2 wrapped-up with the shocking introduction of a male clone, scarface. It was also revealed that Mark, the Prolethean, is one of the male clones. At the Comic-Con 2014, Graeme Mason and John Fawcett, co-creators of "Orphan Black," revealed that they had originally intended to kill the character of Mark, who is played by Ari Millen.

"He [Arin] just showed up in that diner scene, and sitting opposite him, I just saw this actor was so present. He just had this well of depth," Tatiana Maslany, who plays Sarah and her clone sisters, said about her co-actor's performance, as quoted by Entertainment Weekly (EW).
According to Zap2it report, the season three of "Orphan Black" is expected to explore the truth behind Beth's death. Beth is likely to return in Season 3, though in flashbacks, as Fawcett said, "At some point, there is a definite chance that we will see that." Zap2it also quoted Manson as saying, "I think there is probably a twist on what happened with Beth that we don't know yet. Beth committed suicide in Season 1 after meeting Sarah.
Patrick J. Adams had a little guest-starring role in Season 2. Helena fell in love with his character Jesse, the tow-truck guy, and was abducted by the military men when she was on her way to meet him. The recent online media reports suggested that Patrick is unlikely to return to reprise his role. At the Comic-Con, the creators did not explicitly confirm whether Patrick is retuning in Season 3, or not, but Mason said, as quoted by Zap2it, "It was one of our favourite moments of Season 2, getting a little romance for Helena. We love Patrick Adams, he's great. And she's still got that hat. He needs his hat back."
According to EW report, Kristian Bruun, who plays Donnie in the show, recently ran into Patrick, who currently plays Mike Ross in USA Network's "Suits," at a restaurant. Bruun said at the Comic-Con that Patrick told him that he wants to be back on "Orphan Black." The creators also did not confirm whether Sarah's trans-clone, Tony, will make an appearance in Season 3, or not.
The creators are planning to introduce Alison's mother in Season 3 of "Orphan Black."
