The ladies of Lichfield are back… and at war!
Netflix has released a new trailer for the upcoming fourth series of prison comedy-drama Orange Is The New Black.
The prison is now in the business ‘for profit’, meaning Caputo is forced to allow a hundred new inmates and hire new guards. An overcrowded prison leads to high tensions as the female inmates draw their battle lines. The trailer reveals “Some will fight, some will fall!”
Inmates Piper (Taylor Schilling) Red (Kate Mulgrew), Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) Maria (Jessica Pimentel), Morello (Yael Stone) and Suzanne (Uzo Aduba) all seem to be involved in the fight. Meanwhile, Taystee (Danielle Brooks), provides some comic relief as Caputo’s new secretary.
The trailer has noticeable omissions of Laura Prepon‘s Alex (although her voice is heard talking to Red), who was seen facing potential death in the greenhouse thanks to her testimony against her old boss. And Natasha Lyonne’s Nicky, who was falsely accused of drug dealing and sent to max at the start of season 3. Prepon has previously teased season 4, so I think it’s safe to say she’s back. As for Lyonne, Netflix is keeping schtum.
Written by and executive produced by Jenji Kohan the series has already been commissioned for a further three seasons following on from the fourth.
Orange Is The New Black Season 4 is released exclusively on Netflix in its entirety on Friday, 17th June.
