HAPPY JUNE!! Not only is June exciting for the fact that summer *might* be making an appearance, but also it’s just a matter of days until Netflix’s all time best commission, Orange Is The New Black returns to screens across the land. Here’s 5 things we know about season three to get those telly tastebuds a-tingling!
June 12 is a special day
For a while we’ve known the premiere date is June 12th - what they have also revealed is that this season will feature a theme aimed towards faith and motherhood. Last season was a little heavy in places but do not fear OITNB fans, the creators have promised to make it a lighter on this time.
Pornstache has a Mum?!
Super renowned actress Mary Steenburgen has signed an OITNB contract to join the cast as Mendez’s mother. Heck knows how this one is going to pan out, it sure is going to be interesting. With this, good old Mendez won’t be around as much, if you forgot…he’s been locked up so won’t be a frequent character as before.
Alex is back…
Cast members sure come and go in OITNB but Alex is hanging on throughout season 3. The trailer reveals loads about this season, including what looks like Piper getting her ex-lover/convict enemy tossed back into the clink - judging from previous seasons, this is for sure going to be a story line to watch, will they make up, don’t count on it!
…but Larry is gone!!
Jason Biggs made the big announcement he has quit Orange a little while back. He said he is confident that the show doesn’t need him now - he told New York Daily News "They’re not focusing on Larry at the moment. Larry will not be in season three. But there’s always a possibility he can come back,"
The trailer is awesome…
The trailer for season three reveals LOADS, seriously if you’re a fan and haven't seen it then we need to start evaluating you ‘fan’ status. All the returning favourites are in it, from Crazy Eyes to Poussey (it’s French!!) - give it a watch and marvel in the Orangey delight!
