HOUSTON — Season 5 of OITNB, otherwise known as Orange is the New Black, premieres on June 9 on Netflix. If we all remember, season 4 of the series ended on a sour and powerful note with one of the main characters, Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley), dying in prison and the female inmates taking over the federal prison.
OITNB is about the life of Piper Kerman and her book “Orange is the new black: My year in a women’s prison.”
One of Netflix’s most watched TV series, OITNB has won 3 Primetime Emmy Awards, 2 Producers Guild of America Awards, an American Film Institute Award and a Peabody Award.
Netflix recently gave what the faithful fans have been waiting for all year, a sneak peak preview of Season 5.
Take a look of what we all have to look forward to this summer.
