The eagerly anticipated AMC series Orphan Black: Echoes has added actor Krysten Ritter to its cast.

The actor will play Lucy, a character striving to find her place in the world with an unbelievable origin story.

Like its predecessor, Orphan Black, the series is set in the near future and tackles the moral and ethical ramifications of manipulating human existence through science.

It will follow a group of four ladies whose lives are connected as they try to solve the puzzle of who they are.

Ritter is well-known for her fan-favorite parts in Breaking Bad, Don't Trust the B—— in Apartment 23, and Marvel's Jessica Jones.

In addition to directing and executive producing the paranormal YA series The Girl in the Woods for Peacock, she most recently featured in the Netflix film Nightbook. 

 Her next appearance will be in the HBO film Love and Death, starring Elizabeth Olsen.

Fishko and Fawcett will also serve as executive producers. Furthermore, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, executive producers from Boat Rocker on the original Orphan Black series, return as executive producers on the new series. 

Katie O’Connell Marsh, Nick Nantell, and Kerry Appleyard will also executive produce for Boat Rocker. 

 "Embarking on a new saga of Orphan Black with Anna, our partners at Boat Rocker, and AMC could not be more exciting," Fawcett said in an official statement on the announcement of the show.
