orphan-black-season-3-bbc-america-renewed.jpgSure, it was a no-brainer, but BBC America officially renewed hit "Orphan Black" for Season 3, general manager Perry Simon announced to reporters gathered for the summer TV press tour in Los Angeles.

"'Orphan Black is the first ever ad-supported drama to double its audience from Season 1 to Season 2," he says, and it's the network's best-performing series behind worldwide phenomenon "Doctor Who."

Production on Season 3 will begin in Toronto in September, and will premiere on the network in spring 2015.
