Orange Is The New Black Returns With Season 5: We’ve Got Time!

And the scriptwriters this season are definitely not resting on their laurels.

Via Netflix

Not to FREAK YOU OUT, and if you’re like us, you’ve probably been counting down the days to June 9 anyway, but the ground-breaking, diverse, painful, joyful piece of filmic genius that is Orange Is The New Black is returning to our (laptop) screens tonight at midnight with its fifth season in full, available for streaming on Netflix.

 

 

Criticize what you want about OITNB – yes, Piper’s character is about as interesting and deserving of the lead role as an unbuttered white bread roll – but this show has been an absolute game-changer for diverse, meaningful representations of women on our screens. Not to mention that most of these female characters are prison inmates, a class of people that has for the most part of history been relegated to the position of social outcast and presumed lesbian scum.

 

Early reviews are already suggesting that this season is going to be intense, taking place over the course of three days, following on immediately from the jaw-dropping final scene of Season 4 (if you somehow don’t remember, Daya wields a gun at a prison guard, and the prison is about to go into full on lock-down tbh).

 

So gird your loins, Curve-ites. We’re in for a crazy ride.
