Orange is the New Black is set to return to Netflix on June 17 and creator Jenji Kohan has revealed there are plenty of surprises in store for season 4.
Speaking at the series official launch in Los Angeles, Kohan said: “The theme thing was hard this year."
“We start with political agendas, the corporatisation of the prison, the stratification of people into their little mosaic groups. We want it to be a surprise, but [you can expect] all the fun stuff like race and hate and some things from current events that we wanted to filter through our lens.”
Samira Wiley who plays Poussey in the popular prison dramedy said she thinks the show offers something different for viewers.
“I feel like we’ve got something really, really different to what we’ve put out before with this coming series," said Wiley.
While Dascha Polanco (the prison’s new mum, Dayanara Diaz) offered: “Season four will push the envelope to the next level.”
Whilst the trailer for the new season gives very little away, it looks as though Natasha Lyons will return as Nicky and that Ruby Rose has departed the show.
