Orange is The New Black

Counting the days.

Orange Is The New Black is coming back THIS YEAR and nothing else matters. 

If you’re ready for your next dose of madness, here is everything that we know so far. 

> Orange Is The New Black's Samira Wiley Is Now Engaged To Series Writer, Lauren Morelli!


Orange Is The New Black’s Danielle Brooks headed to the red carpet for the SAG Awards and she revealed some gossip about the new series. THANK GOD. 

She said that the new season takes place “over the course of three days. It will be very detailed, very intense and you better get ready. Get your popcorn, your tissues, everything”, she commented.

We’re ready.

The Location

The cast of the series were spotted filming at the Rockland Children’s Psychiatric Centre in South Carolina, a location that is used as a stand-in for the fictional setting of Litchfield Penitentiary. 

The Cast

Who’s coming back? Well, Laura Prepon, Taylor Schilling (Piper), Michael Harney (Sam), Danielle Brooks (Taystee), Uzo Aruba (Suzanne “Crazy Eyes”) and Kate Mulgrew (Galina “Red”) are all confirmed to return. 

Fans are also speculating that Michelle Hurst (Miss Claudia) will be reprising her role. The actress took a break because she was involved in a car accident which prevented her from working. 

Lori Petty also seems to think that Lolly will return, despite being sent to a psych ward. 

The Air Date 

We were expecting it to be June, and we were right. Netflix have announced that the new series will land on June 9th and we could not be more excited.

The Trailer 

UPDATE (12th April 2017): 


If you remember the season 4 cliffhanger - and let’s face it, how could you forget it? - the inmates of Litchfield were revolting against the new guards who were making their lives hell. 

It ended with Daya pointing a gun at Humphrey with a lot of the other prisoners encouraging her to pull the trigger. 

Now, the first look teaser trailer has shown us what we can expect from season five of the hit TV show. And if this trailer is anything to go by, then Piper Chapman and Alex Vause are looking to avoid trouble.

But in reality, how long can that last? 

In the final moments of the trailer, you can her a gunshot… suggesting that perhaps Daya really will fire the gun. Although, what remains unclear is whether she has shot Humphreys or not.


IT'S ARRIVED. We have a very short sneak peek trailer for the new season. YES.
