BBC America's flagship show "Orphan Black" has again got the snub from Emmys, but the good news is that the show has been renewed for Season 3. Sarah and her clone sisters are returning, along with Mark and his clone brothers.

John Fawcett, co-creator of "Orphan Black," shared on Twitter: "@OrphanBlack @GraemeManson1 #CloneClub G and I have craaaazy plans for S3! Can't wait to unleash them!"

The season 2 of "Orphan Black" wrapped-up with the revelation about male clones -- who are part of Project Castor. It was revealed that Mark, who was getting married to Gracie, is one of the male clones. And, the viewers also came to know about Paul's association with Project Castor.  Paul's men in uniform abducted Helena and she was being taken to an undisclosed location, as part of his deal with Ms S to save Sarah.

"A lot of the things that we put in motion at the end of season two are obviously big story components going forward and new pieces to the puzzle," Fawcett had said to The Hollywood Reporter.

Patrick J Adams is unlikely to return in Season 3 to reprise his guest role of Jessie, while Michiel Huisman is likely to return to portray the role of Cal, Kira's father. Hank is dead, but his wife Bonnie is still alive and she may be returning, with revenge on her mind.  And, the little clone sister of Sarah, Charlotte, is also coming back in Season 3.  

Meanwhile, Tatiana Maslany, who recently won the best actress award at the Critics' Choice T.V. Awards, was again over-looked by the Primetime Emmys.  She and her show, "Orphan Black," both did not score any nomination.

"Orphan Black" is expected to return, with ten episodes of Season 3 in spring 2014.  According to reports, the production is scheduled to begin this September in Toronto, Canada.

On 25 July, "Orphan Black" panel, consisting of cast and creators, will be there at Comic-Con in San Diego.
