Season Five of Orange is the New Black begins at precisely the point where Season Four left off – with a riot in progress following the death of Poussey.
Season Five will unfold in real time and over the course of just three days. Netflix has released a video of the first 60 seconds of the first episode – and eight first look photos (the remaining seven follow – double click to embiggen).
Orange is the New Black returns on Friday, June 9th.
NBC has been trying to turn their fortunes around by throwing things at the wall and hoping something will stick. Are You There Chelsea [Wednesdays, 8:30/7:30C] is a prime example. Like the network’s Whitney, it’s a crass, female-centric sitcom that is loosely based on the life if its creator, Chelsea Handler – and like Whitney, it’s almost entirely bereft of laughs.
When Castle returns from its holiday hiatus [ABC, Monday, 10/9C], Kate Beckett meets Nikki Heat – at least, she meets Natalie Rhodes, the actress who will plying Heat in a movie based on Richard Castle’s novel.
