Netflix on Sunday announced that Season 4 of Orange is the New Black will be debuting June 17 at 12:01 a.m. PT.
This is, of course, on par with previous seasons, all of which debuted in June with the exception of the show’s freshman season, which dropped in July.
With the tease of a whole lot of new inmates coming into Litchfield at the end of season 3, there are a lot of directions that the show could take from here on out! Things were looking pretty serious in that trailer, with a shot of armed guards charging out of a van, and there was of course the usual splash of comedy to keep things lighthearted. One thing is for sure, the fourth season of the hugely successful show is going to raise the stakes to the max!
As the show goes on, it seems like characters such as Piper, who was hardly a criminal before coming to Litchfield, become ever more violent and cruel, while characters who appeared to be hardened criminals from the beginning, such as Boo, are now seeming kinder and more light hearted every episode. That’s how the twisted prison system works unfortunately, and the show is doing an incredible job of showing that!
Orange is the New Black season 4 hits Netflix June 17th, 2016.
