Fans of OITNB get your diary out and prepare to make a note as Netflix has announced the Orange Is the New Black Season 5 premiere date.
The highly anticipated prison drama has officially been given a return date. Show bosses at Netflix announced that the Orange Is the New Black Season 5 Premiere Date has been scheduled for June 9th, 2017. However, there’s more.
Not only was the release date announced but a teaser trailer, which can be watched below, was also released. The 15-second long teaser trailer rotates itself through a handful of the cast giving a fresh look at how they are after the ending of season 4 which finished on a major cliffhanger.
The major thing to note from it is that the teaser trailer ends with how season 4 ends signalling that the show will return exactly where the show has left off from.
Season 5 is also set to run differently from the previous seasons. An interview with The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the 13 episode season shall span over the course of three days whereas in the past the timeframe has always been unclear so as not to make it known how long each prison member has left of their sentence.
During the interview it was described that season 5 will be:
“It will be very detailed, very intense, and you better get ready,”
“Get your popcorn, your tissues.”
OITNB is arguably the most successful and popular Netflix original series being recently renewed for a season 7 and winning several rewards.
