Kristian Bruun, who played the fan-favorite Donnie Hendrix on the hit series Orphan Black, will be reprising his role for the second season of the podcast Orphan Black: The Next Chapter. Bruun joins original Orphan Black castmates including Tatiana Maslany, who won an Emmy for her performance in the shot, as well as Jordan Gavaris and Evelyne Brochu.
The Next Chapter is the official continuation of the series, narrated by Maslany, as it continues the journey of the sestras and explores the dangerous, life-changing consequences of having destroyed Project Leda for good. Bruun was excited to return to the world of Orphan Black saying:
I’m thrilled to be stepping into Donnie’s shoes once again for this exciting continuation of the Orphan Black story. The best part is it’s audio, so I don’t have to wear any dad jeans or tight briefs!
Bruun has kept himself busy since Orphan Black went off the air, he’s held a steady role in the Canadian crime series Murdoch Mysteries and was most recently seen in the Fox Searchlight horror film Ready Or Not, starring Samara Weaving.
The podcast is produced by Realm, an audio entertainment company that has produced other shows like If I Go Missing the Witches Did It (starring Oscar-nominated Gabourey Sidibe), and Memory Lane (written by Pretty Little Liars creator Sara Shepard). Realm has also dabbled in producing DC and Marvel content with Wonder Woman: Heartless and Black Panther: Sins of the King.
Realm announced that AMC Networks, the parent company of BBC America (which was home for the series for five seasons, will co-produce the second season of the podcast. Realm’s founder Molly Barton said:
We are thrilled to bring a new audio season of Orphan Black to #CloneClub fans worldwide. The opportunity to expand the franchise, in collaboration with the actors who made this show a cultural phenomenon, gives us an enormous sense of pride.

The official synopsis is:
Picking up eight months after season one left off, season two of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter explores the continuing fallout of the clones being outed to the world: the ways in which different clones cope with their exposure—or fail to; how loneliness is not easily overcome, even among hundreds of genetic identicals; and the power of family—chosen and unchosen—to rally not only against those who mean them harm, but also in support of one another. Plus, there are new developments for Cosima and Delphine; new drama for Alison and Donnie; new purpose for Sarah; a return to action for Helena; unexpected turns for Rachel; trouble for Charlotte; new misadventures for Felix; the return of clone CIA agent Vivi Valdez, and the introduction of several prominent new clones. In the podcast series, Maslany, who portrays all adult clones including Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus, Alison Hendrix, Helena, Rachel Duncan, and Vivi Valdez, is joined by Bruun, as well as Evelyne Brochu plays Delphine Cormier and Jordan Gavaris returns as Felix Dawkins.
