The time has come: Litchfield Prison is back in action this coming Friday, June 12 for its third season. That’s right, "Orange Is The New Black" is returning with 14 episodes of pure comedy, drama, violence, and a little bit of love (or a lot). If you’re not on the edge of your seat all week waiting for this season to be released, well you just might have to be the newest inmate in Litchfield. Just kidding. But really, if you don’t have any plans for Friday night, OITNB will make up for a boring night at home.
For a quick recap, we ended Season 2 with Vee escaping through the greenhouse, although later to be run down by the terminally ill Rosa who escaped with the van Morello escorted her to. However, while Piper has gotten more comfortable inside the prison, her ex-fiancé has gotten more comfortable with her ex-best friend Polly. But just because that relationship ended, doesn’t mean a new one is about to reform with Alex as she returns back in her jumpsuit. Daya is still pregnant with the guard’s (Bennett) child, and Caputo is still a mess just trying out his new position in the prison. Healy on the other hand is still not sure where he is mentally as his Safe Group is the only thing he feels he has left.
What do you think is going to happen in Season 3? I’ve heard this season is going to be mostly based on faith, so we all know how that goes in prison. New inmates arrive, Alex returns, the kitchen gets pretty hot and crazy, and Crazy Eyes will.... well we never know what really goes on with her.
There is so much to look forward to this Friday, June 12! If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, watch it here below! So, get ready to spend 588 minutes with your heart beating out of your chest, your jaw dropped open, and crying tears of both happiness and sadness. Season 3 we’re ready for you!
