Orphan Black, Season 3 – BBC iPlayer
23 September 2015 at 10:00pm

It’ll then run 2 episodes a night a 1.30am every night till 1st Oct. I suspect this has less to do with BBC3 not having faith in the show, and more to do with the fact that most BBC3 viewers watch on iPlayer, so it’s kind of irrelevant when they air it live… A fourth series has been commissioned by BBC America.
