Following directly on the events of the season four finale, the thirteen episode of season five of Orange is the New Black take place in more-or-less real time over three days as the inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary rebel against their inhumane treatment.
Season 5 of OITNB premieres on Netflix on June 9th.
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.
Things are getting darker at Litchfield this season. One hundred new inmates have been unceremoniously dumped into the prison and the warden is more than a little worried.
Piper is afraid that she’s ‘pissed off the prison,’ and Pennsatucky defines the difference between pain and suffering, ‘pain’s always there, but suffering is a choice.’
Even without the tweaks to the Emmy rules, I don’t think this season would have been eligible for Best Comedy Series. Check out the season 4 trailer following the jump. OITNB returns to Netflix on June 17th.
Syfy’s Dark Matter – from John Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (various Stargate titles) – will guest star Ruby Rose, who was featured in the latest season of Orange is the New Black, on its July 24th episode.
Rose will play Wendy, an entertainment android who may be more than she seems. Follow the jump for more.

There were a lot of first time nominations and winners at last night’s Critics Choice Television Awards. Granted, the awards are only four years old, but look at almost any four-year stretch of the Emmys and see how many new shows get nominated and then win. While there were a few repeat winners – Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad, Jim Parsons, the very deserving Tatiana Maslany among them – the night was notable for giving rookies some love.
True Detective’s Matthew McConaghey took Best Actor, Drama, Fargo got Best Mini-Series and acting wins for Billy Bob Thornton (Best Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series) and Allison Tolman (Best Supporting Actress in Movie or Mini-Series) and Orange Is the New Black nabbed Best Comedy Series (it is funnier than Nurse Jackie!) and two acting awards. For a complete list of winners, and a bit of commentary follow the jump.
