The latest trailer for series five of Orange is the New Black has landed and the women of Litchfield aren't backing down.

The final episode of series four saw the accidental death of inmate, Poussey (Samira Wiley), after she was suffocated by a guard during an attempted peaceful protest.

Not content with the abusive conditions, it now it looks like the girls are joining forces to fight against the system. 

"You've done a girl wrong, Mr. Caputo, and we want justice."

The trailer comes exactly one month ahead the series' release and fans of the show can't contain their excitement. 

Orange is the New Black series five premieres on Netflix, June 9. 

Check out the full trailer below. 


We're all dying for the new season of OITNB to come to Netflix, but we don't want to watch it by any ill-gotten means. 

According to reports, the newest season of Orange is the New Black has been hijacked by a hacker who is blackmailing Netflix for ransom.

The hacker, who goes by the name The Dark Overlord, claims to have stolen the upcoming season, and is asking for an unspecified ransom to not release the entire fifth series online.

The hacker has already uploaded the first episode to an illegal file-sharing service, according to the Associated Press

Season 5 consists of 13 episodes and was set to be released on June 9 this year

With speculation intensifying over Taryn Manning's addiction issues, the Orange Is The New Black star has decided to address the reports head-on.

According to TMZ, the actress, who plays Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett in the Netflix original, has acknowledged that a particular media outlet is planning to run a story on her, so decided to beat them at their own game by refusing to hide from the publicity.

"I am truly grateful for what some may call hitting rock bottom. Some days it sucks and some days it sucks worse," she admitted.

Taryn, who will turn 38 next month, is adamant her demons will not get the better of her, adding: "I am not ashamed of this obstacle because I have accepted that it is okay to not be okay."

Paying tribute to her co-stars on the smash-hit prison show, Taryn, who has appeared in numerous box office hits including 8 Mile and Cold Mountain, insisted her personal struggles have not had a negative effect on her professional relationships.

"I've never felt more accepted, forgiven, and supported than during this period of my life. This is not easy," she admitted.

Fair play to her.


Danielle Brooks, who is best known for playing the ever effervescent Taystee on Orange is the New Black, has divided Twitter with a post about flying first-class.

Taking to social media last night, the 26-year-old actress expressed her disappointment with airport staff who appear surprised by the fact she would be flying first class.

Outlining her irritation for her followers, she wrote: "I hate when gate agents look at me like I've never flown first class and say "You're in first class, lucky you! really tho."

And while the tweet was liked more than 2,000 times, some Twitter users struggled to understand Danielle's perspective on the issue.

"Have some humility. Not everyone knows who you are," wrote one Twitter user while another tweeted: "There are people who have to be offended by something so they find anything. You are one of those people."

Stunned that some individuals seemed incapable of acknowledging the possible motivation for the agents' surprise, a fan of the actress wrote: "Spoken like a tru white dude. Do u think white people get astonishment and 'lucky you' comments when flying 1º class?" (sic)

"Say man, I suggest u stop telling black folks how they should feel about certain things," wrote another. "Ur not qualified to do so." (sic)

Debate raged beneath Danielle's post with some Twitter users insisting that the actress was reading too much into the comment while others maintained that 'casual racism' shouldn't be ignored.


It's still a few months until season four of Orange Is The New Black hits Netflix – four months and two days to be exact – but if you're a fan, this might just speed up the wait a bit for you.

Netflix have released an epic compilation of the best behind-the-scenes bloopers from season three, and it's full of clangers that will have you giggling like a loon.

That feeling when you get so giddy that anything anyone says makes you laugh? Yeah, the OITNB cast have that Every. Damn. Day.

Watch below, and prepare to get a fit of chuckles watching Red trying – and failing – to master the line, "I'm back, b*tch."



We miss it dearly while it's gone, and whine like a little puppy when we don't know how to fill our OITNB void.

But fear not, because the ladies of Litchfield Prison will be coming back to us very soon. 

Variety has confirmed that the season 4 premiere date for Orange Is The New Black is June 17, 2016. Yay!

They are also switching days, and this season the show will be on Fridays… Because Netflix bosses know we need a full weekend to binge on it.

Release dates were also set for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (April 15) and, after much uncertainty, it has been confirmed that Jessica Jones will be back this year.


Now this was a red carpet to remember!

Big time red carpet events have been scrutinised of late for their rather boring and obvious fashion sense – but last night's Emmy Awards certainly turned the style game up a notch. 

Never have we seen so many innovative, daring and risky-yet-classy choices from our favourite stars on TV. 

From well established labels to never-before-mentioned designers, here's a look at our top ten looks:

Kerry Washington

This metallic dot lace number from Marc Jacobs was a brilliant choice for Kerry. Extravagant yet elegant, her look is a top player for us. 


Laura Prepon

Laura looked like she was a Grecian Queen last night in this Christian Siriano number. Her black hair contrasted with the red and gold beautifully. She was certainly dressed to kill. 


Claire Danes

The pencil-thin, slick-sequined stripes combined with heavy chain detail straps was an unconventional choice for Claire, yet we love this Prada number on her so much.


Kiernan Shipka

This Dior combination is odd, but dreamy. The delicately embroidered, lavishly gilded top with black pencil trousers is a refreshing take for the young Hollywood star. Will Kiernan be out next style crush?


Sophie Turner

Game of Thrones actress, Sophie went for sophisticated-cool last night. With mostly all attendees wearing dresses, we love this Galvan jumpsuit with a blue velvet top.  


Sofia Vergara

Hugging her in all the right places, Sofia looked like an old Hollywood movie star last night. The Saint John number was the perfect combination of sexy yet classy. 


Taraji P. Henson

We're obsessed with Taraji's custom Alexander Wang dress. Detailing a little transparency through the skirt and a keyhole cut-out with chain straps – it sent us to style heaven. 


Uzo Aduba

Uzo won an Emmy last night and to collect her award she graced the stage in a pink (and fabulous) Jonathan Cohen gown. This is definitely one for innovation and we love the grey detail across her waist. Very art deco.


Danielle Brooks

Another OITNB actress wowed on the red carpet last night. Danielle shined like the sun in this Christian Siriano number. Top marks for jumping out of the safe colour zones. 


Sarah Hyland

Sarah wore a Zac Posen dress last night ans we're crushing on the autumn colour. She styled it perfectly with a short, choppy hair do' and matching jewellery. Brownie points for the same colour nails!


Ruby Rose became a household name overnight… Literally, overnight. One day she was an Australian TV presenter and then season 3 of OITNB aired and BAM – she was a global sensation.

But as with all rapid rises to fame, there are most certainly its drawbacks.

For the 29-year-old model, this includes having to postpone her wedding to her fiancée, Phoebe Dahl.

Ruby, also known as Justin Bieber’s doppelgänger, explained to People that when she initially signed up for the show she thought things would be a little bit more hectic but that she never anticipated the level of fame that she would reach.

“I don’t think anyone knew that my character would be taken so well. We want to find the time to plan the wedding, but now I think it’s going to be, like, next year.

“Originally it was going to be this year, but I feel like that’s a bit too ambitious,” the actress explained.

The DJ also revealed just how much she is enjoying being engaged to Roald Dahl’s granddaughter. “As it turns out we love being engaged, and I love the word ‘fiancée’.”

The former MTV presenter also revealed that when they do finally get to tie the knot, she plans on wearing a tux for the ceremony.

“I want to do a tux, like a really nice fitted suit. Givenchy or a Tom Ford,” Ms Rose divulged. 


As funny as it was in the episode of OITNB when Alex (Laura Prepon) refers to the newest inmate Stella (Ruby Rose) as Justin Bieber, we didn't realise just how much they look alike until right now. 

The world’s hottest new obsession, Ruby Rose, is the absolute image of the Biebs.

The pair were seen hanging out yesterday backstage at the Avicii concert in Vegas. The Boyfriend singer and breakout actress were both there for the festival, Electric Daisy Carnival.

Ruby posted a photo with Justin to her Instagram and captioned it, “#twinning.”

And she really wasn’t exaggerating – they are identical! That is a whole load of pretty going on.

The 29-year-old actress became an overnight sensation when she debuted in the new series of Orange is the New Black.

She is engaged to Phoebe Dahl, the clothing designer who is also the granddaughter of the late children’s author, Roald Dahl. 



While most press junket interviews tend to follow the same kind of format, every now and then you see one that makes you just want crawl into a hole and hide.

Think Tom Hardy’s recent Mad Max interview when he was asked if he wondered why there weren’t more men in the film, or the AWFUL interview with Quentin Tarantino and Channel 4 presenter, Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

And now we have the interview with the cast of Orange is the New Black and Brazilian journalist and comedian, Rafael Cortez to add to the list.

The interviewer went and asked some extremely condescending and inappropriate questions. As Natasha Lyonne so succinctly summarised – “I feel like it’s accidentally maybe a little bit misogynistic because it’s like ‘You’re so beautiful, what’s it like having to do all that acting?’”

The tone of the interview is almost so outrageous and inappropriate and Mr Cortez is in fact a comedian, we do have to wonder, was he joking all along?

What do you think?  



The time has finally come – Netflix have released a brand new Orange Is The New Black trailer. 

Season 3 will land on your Netflix account June 12 and we could NOT be more excited. 

Things are looking explosive for Piper, especially with the return of Alex – eek!

We reckon a weekend of refreshing our memories on season 2 is in order. 

Here are some stills from the new series to get you even more excited:
