Netflix Sets ‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 5 Premiere Date, Releases Teaser (VIDEO)
The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary will be back on Friday, June 9, Netflix announced Wednesday. Orange is the New Black, the comedy (or is it a drama) set in a women’s prison, was picked up last year by the streaming network for seasons 5-7. Creator and showrunner Jenji Kohan will remain with the show for all announced seasons.
At a press event in New York City, Netflix released a 15-second teaser of the new season. And while it isn’t long enough to reveal too many details about what our favorite group of inmates are up to after the riotous Season 4 finale, it is enough to leave us wanting more.
On the red carpet of last month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Danielle Brooks revealed to E! how Season 5 will play out. “You will watch 13 episodes, and find out what happens in the course of three days,” she revealed. “So, it will be very detailed, very intense, and you better get ready. Get your popcorn, your tissues, everything.”
