What is series six about?
Netflix has yet to release a synopsis of the upcoming series but as OINTB fans will remember there was a major cliff-hanger at the end of series five. With the prison half-destroyed and the prisoners taking over in a full-blown riot, the series ended with 10 of Litchfield’s most popular inmates – including Piper, Alex and Nicky - being discovered in Frieda’s bunker by the CERT Officers. Meanwhile the remaining prisoners were carted off on buses to a new prison in an undisclosed location.
The site of the new prison remains unknown, but we can only predict the new mayhem, conflicts and complex new relationships it will spawn.
Is there a trailer for Orange is the New Black series 6?
The trailer has yet to be released, but Netflix has published the following teaser which shows the destroyed Litchfield cafeteria, a prison bus driving off into the unknown and the voiceover declaring ‘This is a whole new world’.
