Litchfield Penitentiary welcomes a flock of new inmates in the full trailer for Orange is the New Black season 4, stoking excitement for the show’s much-anticipated return on June 17.
With the Powers That Be ringing the changes for the ladies of Litchfield, today’s sizzle reel offers an overview of the stricter rules and red tape thrust upon Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Co., which is sure to spark internal clashes left, right and center.
Looking ahead to the immediate future of Orange is the New Black, series creator Jenji Kohan previously teased that season 4 starts “with political agendas, the corporatization of the prison, the stratification of people into their little mosaic groups. We want it to be a surprise, but [you can expect] all the fun stuff like race and hate and some things from current events that we wanted to filter through our lens.”
Kate Mulgrew, Uzo Aduba, Taryn Manning, Danielle Brooks, Natasha Lyonne and Yael Stone headline OITNB‘s ensemble cast, with a bevy of newcomers signalling those changes headed to Litchfield’s status quo.
Who will fight, and who will fall? All episodes of Orange is the New Black season 4 are set to premiere via Netflix on June 17. The road doesn’t end there for Piper and Co., however, now that the company has confirmed plans for seasons 5, 6 and 7 of OITNB.
