Change is in the air at Litchfield Penitentiary… Yes, the first trailer for season three of Netflix’s prison-set Orange is the New Black has arrived – and there are new haircuts, new guards, new blue outfits, new quarrels and a few new inmates who seem determined to shake things up.
And considering the prison escape-gone-wrong at the end of the last series, we can assume there’ll be some new challenges for the management as well…
Still, there’s some familiarity in the return of Laura Prepon’s Alex Vause, absent for much of the last series – although she appears to know its ex-girlfriend Piper’s (Taylor Schilling) fault she’s back in the stir…
So all in all, plenty of fun, pathos and prison politics to look forward to again.
Oh, and tears.
Lots of tears.
Hopefully they’ve got plenty of tissues in the prison commissary.
Orange is the New Black season three will be released on Netflix on 12th June
