Aramide Tinubu Set nearly 40 years after the end of the original series, “Orphan Black: Echoes” opens as a woman named Lucy (Krysten Ritter) awakens in an unfamiliar environment.

Though the scientist (Keeley Hawes) who rouses her tries to calm her down, Lucy is agitated and eventually flees. When the audience meets Lucy again two years later, she seems content with the quiet life she’s built on a farm in the Massachusetts countryside with her lover, Jack (Avan Jogia), and Jack’s young daughter, Charlie (Zariella Langford-Haughton).

Inwardly, however, she’s haunted by the fact that she has no memories from before the scientist (who has major ties to the original series) awakened her.

After an incident on the farm pushes her to uncover her origin story, she’s horrified by what she learns. “Orphan Black: Echoes” boasts an intriguing connection to the original show — John Fawcett, co-creator of “Orphan Black,” is director and executive producer on the spinoff — and a multilayered mystery at its heart.
