SPOILER ALERT: This article discusses Season 5 of BBC America’s Orphan Black. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

When the official announcement came from BBC America that Season 5 of Orphan Black would be its last, the fanbase was saddened, many taking to social media to voice their dismay. However, five seasons were always a part of the plan in regard to Orphan Black. So, moving forward, the clone club has one last season left to enjoy the strange and amazing world of Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) and her fellow clones.

Before fans can view the final season of Orphan Black, though, there is the agonizing lead up to the premiere date where fans will be eagerly counting down the days as well as saddened that each day will, invariably, bring them closer to the end.

BBC America recently released the first promotional images for Season 5 of Orphan Black, so, hopefully, that will soften the blow of the final season somewhat. There are 11 images in total and fans can ogle over them and read into them all that they like.

You can view the full gallery of official promotional images for Season 5 of Orphan Black below.

Please make note that one image in the gallery is listed as including Donnie (Kristian Bruun), Alison (Tatiana Maslany) and Felix (Jordan Garvaris). While Entertainment Weekly has confirmed this image is Donnie, his face is obscured. This has led to fans speculating over to whether Donnie is dead, injured, or merely ducking down. The rest of the image shows Alison and Felix standing in front of a curtain, so it is possible they are all appearing in one of Alison’s stage productions. Regardless, Felix looks very concerned about what is going on.
