Created by Jenji Kohan and based on Piper Kerman's memoir of the same name, Orange is the New Black has garnered 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and won three. Of course we're going to watch it, but this is the first time an upcoming season of the show feels more like an assignment rather than something we're looking forward to.
There's really no telling what's ahead for the ladies in season six.
I don't think we're in Litchfield anymore.
"Orange is the New Black" Season 6 premieres July 27.
From the looks of this trailer, Orange Is The New Black will continue in its dedication to providing compelling storylines for its characters, so get ready for an emotional rollercoaster. "We have iron wills, and fucking nothing to lose".
"This isn't home. this is not home!' a panicked Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes" Warren (Uzo Aduba) summarizes for her prison-mates at the top of the clip, only to be told sardonically by one of the guards: 'It is now'.
Following last seasons riot, the ladies have been sent to a maximum security prison, where there are a few noticeably absent faces and an investigation into the riot and the deaths of CO Humphrey (Michael Torpey) and Piscatella (Brad William Henke), who, if you remember, was shot by a trigger-happy member of the SWAT team sent in to end the riot.
The new season, which picks up the story one week after the SWAT raid, shows the now-newbies as they navigate new rules and power dynamics at their new home, facing charges stemming from last season's riot and the offer of plea deals to turn on one another.
