New Tonight: Orphan Black, Turn: Washington’s Spies series finale; Doubt finale

While Saturdays are often a relatively barren night when it comes to new programming, it’s going to be anything but this time around!

Below, we’ve got some of the highlights from tonight — including several finales — that you’re going to want to keep marked on your schedule somewhere.

Orphan Black – It’s by far the most famous original series in the history of BBC America, and tonight, the story of the Clone Club comes to an end. Expect surprises, and another reminder that Tatiana Maslany is one of the best actors currently working. As of right now, we imagine that she is going to be offered a wide array of different roles, with the one twist being that they all probably aren’t going to be on the same show anymore. We’re just glad that Maslany managed to secure the Emmy win that she so richly deserved before the end of the run.

Quick programming note here: Even if the show is starting at 10:00 p.m. Eastern, expect to see it run slightly over. There’s a lot of content for the producers to get through before the end.

Turn: Washington’s Spies – The series finale for this show is also coming on AMC tonight starting at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, and you should also expect it to run longer than its typical hour given that there are so many endgames that it needs to establish. This is a show based on history, so obviously you know a thing or two about what’s happening when it comes to the Revolutionary War. We just have to wait and see how the story is interpreted in the context of some of the characters who are a part of the show.

Doubt – This show is coming onto CBS starting at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, and it’s coming to you in the form of two episodes airing back to back. It’s also coming to you without a significant amount of fanfare, given that the Katherine Heigl series was effectively canceled earlier this year after a couple of low-rated outings. The show exists tonight mostly from the vantage point of CBS not wanting to anger people who already started to put their time into the proceedings.

Oh, and if you love cartoons, there’s basically a marathon of the new DuckTales happening over on Disney XD. Enjoy.
