New Trailers Tease Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black and Grace and Frankie (VIDEO)
Netflix is offering up previews for two of its original series today, with new trailers highlighting what’s ahead in Season 3 of hit Orange Is the New Black and the premiere of all-new Grace and Frankie.
Orange Is the New Black
It seems there’ll be comedy, drama, emotion, and commentary from the walls of Litchfield Penitentiary as the hit series returns for a third run. Alex (Laura Prepon) is back behind bars (so to speak), Piper (Taylor Schilling) is flirting with new inmate Stella (Ruby Rose) and Red (Kate Mulgrew) is sporting some battle wounds. And of course, Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Big Cindy (Adrienne Moore) are back to joking around.
Meanwhile,Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) expresses her feelings through writing but has to defend her work to the naysayers: “No, it’s not just sex, it’s love. It’s two people connecting, with four other people and aliens …”
Bless the recipient of that letter if it gets approved. Season 3 premieres Friday, June 12.
Grace and Frankie
Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) star in the heartbreaking comedy as recovering divorcees coping with their husbands, Martin Sheen (Robert) and Sam Waterston (Sol), becoming a couple themselves.
“Yes, Robert is my law partner, but we are also homosexual law and bed partners with each other,” Sol explains awkwardly at a cocktail party.
The announcement throws a monkey wrench into Grace and Frankie’s happily-ever-afters, and the two develop a love/hate dynamic as they sort through the change together. The series premieres on Netflix on May 8.
