Critic Reviews for Orphan Black Season 5

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

While it's been bittersweet knowing that this is the end of the road for Sarah & co., its strong, individual vision has been a refreshing presence in this crowded TV landscape.

Parts of Orphan Black were complicated and messy, too, but every time the mythology of the show got too involved or confusing, it always balanced out the lore with the clones' surprisingly ordinary and human moments.

If I could open this review with a slow clap, I would!

Jun 21, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Orphan Black, unlike so many other shows of its type, never faltered in the portrayal of the relationships at its center.

This is Orphan Black at its best, and it appears season 4 did the work necessary to get us back to this point. It's a new day, indeed.

Jun 10, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Orphan Black has always been most interesting and engaging when it comes to the bond between the sister clones. That continues here, even as the stakes increase and the sestras are more separated than ever.

The episodes feel pointed and agile in their narratives (as early as episode two, there are tearful goodbyes), while also indulging in the right doses of pure fun and fan service.

Jun 12, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

As the story draws toward its end, it reframes its original questions about the power and consequences of creation by adding new wrinkles to ponder that echo current conversations about feminism and a woman's right to choice.

Jun 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The plot makes some sense in the final season, but it's trying too hard, too late.

Jun 9, 2017 | Full Review…

Orphan Black continues to delight and expand in engaging and fulfilling ways.

Audience Reviews for Orphan Black: Season 5

    Deep script, incredible Tatiana Masiany performance, I watched the French dubbed show, it is really amazing, amazingly thrilling, suspenseful, characters are very well done. If I can notice one or two lower points about it, I really don't mind, I mean some very few guys who vanish without any light ment or wrinkle , like kira's dad or the heroic black sex friend of madam S, who just appear in 1 time, he could have been more useful. But all these things don't matter much at all, no worry. This is a very moving show, and a pretty hommage to women

    Brings the series to a satisfying conclusion, though I think the plot is thin compared to the previous season. Still manages to be intriguing and exciting all the way through.

    I have loved this show so much since day one. It's never disappointed me in the talent of the cast and writers. Tatiana Maslany is phenomenal! Every single clone is so well acted you almost believe they are clones and not a single, extremely talented actress. If you have been putting off binging this show I wouldn't wait any longer. You will not be sorry.

    Orphan black was phenomenal! To watch one actress play the roll of multiple different people so well and really completely continuing to "wow" you throughout the seasons... well that girl deserved a award!

    Another well-done season and the plot was excellent for this finale season. They did an incredible job making you forgot all the orphans were the same actress.

    one of my best list! love everything since begining till the end ps. especially love Helena's character so much

    I will miss Tatiana Maslany creating magic every episode along with all of the main characters. This show has taken brave chances and almost always succeeded all while making us think without preaching. It's ability to shift genres so while maintaining context is brilliant.

    great show, can't believe they decided to end this show after 5 seasons. Tatiana Maslany is just an incredible actress to be playing so many characters for 5 years when most can barely play two within the same movie.

    So this science fiction series about human cloning has come to a satisfying end. Tatiana Maslany has to win her Emmy again, her astounding performances as Sarah Manning, Alison Hendrix, Cosima Niehaus, Helena and Rachel Duncan deserve it!!! It was an amazing ride with its five seasons and I enjoyed it a lot even though I do not know much about genetics and stuff. Great work, Canada!
