the second season of "Orphan Black" is about to become a little more crowded. Lead actress Tatiana Maslany already plays seven characters on the show, and BBC America announced Friday that Michiel Huisman, Peter Outerbridge and Ari Millen would be joining the cast.

For "Nashville" fans, Huisman is better known as Liam, Rayna's record producer and sometimes love interest. Outerbridge may look familiar to "Nikita" fans, as he played a villain on The CW series. Millen has also appeared on "Nikita" and "Rookie Blue."

According to TV Line, Huisman will join the hit BBC America series as "Cal Morrison, a rugged, resourceful outdoorsman with surprising emotional depth and a sixth sense about people and situations," while Outerbridge will play Henrik “Hank” Johanssen, "a mercurial modern-day cowboy."

Huisman will also be playing Daario Naharis in the upcoming fourth season of "Game of Thrones."

"Orphan Black" was a critical success for BBC America, with many tuning in to see Maslany's star-making turn (though she wasn't nominated for an Emmy, which some consider one of the biggest snubs of the awards). The series has also developed a diehard fan base who call themselves "The Clone Club" and have made fan art stickers for their favorite show.

The second season of "Orphan Black" is currently in production and will premiere on BBC America in April 2014.

"Orphan Black" Season 1 is having an encore presentation Saturdays at 10 p.m. EST on BBC America.
