The trailer for Orange is the New Black season four dropped today, offering very few concrete details about the plot of this season (all we know is that there’s an influx of inmates) but a whole lot of new faces and one-liners. Season four returns just as Emmy ballots are out for season three.
Lots of favorite recurring characters aren’t in the trailer. Alex (Laura Prepon) is notably missing, even if her voice can be heard. Other MIA actresses include Natasha Lyonne and Ruby Rose. Even Taryn Manning (who’s had some personal troubles in the news) doesn’t have much to do in the trailer, except utter this cryptic line: “Do you know the difference between pain and suffering? Pain is always there but suffering is a choice.”
Overall, the show looks like it’s getting back to its dark and gritty self, as opposed to the season three spiritual one.
OITNB season four drops on Netflix June 17.
