After neutralizing the threat by the DYAD Institute and the ruthless clone Rachel (Maslany), Project Leda clones Sarah, Alison, Cosima and Helena, (Maslany) are finally all united in their journey towards the truth of who and what they are. But new discoveries that include Helena’s kidnapping, a book that could contain the answers to their existence, and the most shocking discovery of them all – a set of treacherous militaristic male clones (Ari Millen) with an unknown agenda – will test how tight their new bonds are.

Guest stars include Justin Chatwin as Jason Kellerman, a neighborhood dealer, James Frain as Ferdinand, a cleaner sent to DYAD, and Ksenia Solo as Shay, a new woman in Cosima’s life.
