"Set in the near future, Orphan Black: Echoes takes a deep dive into the exploration of the scientific manipulation of human existence," the network said in a news release Thursday.

"It follows a group of women as they weave their way into each other's lives and embark on a thrilling journey, unravelling the mystery of their identity and uncovering a wrenching story of love and betrayal. Ritter will play Lucy, a woman with an unimaginable origin story, trying to find her place in the world."

Anna Fishko -- whose credits include Pieces of Her, The Society and Fear the Walking Dead -- is creator, writer, showrunner and executive producer of Orphan Black: Echoes.

Ritter, who is also executive producer on Echoes, will next be seen in HBO's Love and Death, opposite Elizabeth Olsen.

The original Orphan Black starred Tatian Maslany and ran for five seasons, 2013-17.
