Netflix has confirmed the release date for the fifth installment of its prison drama series "Orange Is the New Black." Jessica Pimentel, who portrays Latina inmate Maria Ruiz, shared the latest details.
Little is known about the upcoming season, but fans are definitely expecting to see the consequences of everyone's actions unfold in "Orange Is the New Black" season 5. Pimentel, who portrays a Latina inmate, shared that the upcoming season is "highly stylized." And compared to its preceding seasons, the next installment is noticeably very different from the other four seasons.
Speaking to The Music, Pimentel shared, "I'm really, really excited. This season is shot in a completely different way than the previous four... I can tell you that it is shot in real time over the course of three days. The whole season is three days ... The three days are dealing with the aftermath [of the season four ending]."
According to the actress, fans of the show will definitely see their favorite characters in pinch. They will be thrust into situations which, Pimentel says, fans would never expect. In addition, she said that fans can expect to see certain characters who have never interacted before to mingle.
When "Orange Is the New Black" returns on Netflix, viewers will see more chaos in the prison, which sparked after the death of Poussey (Samira Wiley). In addition, fans will finally get their answer to last season's cliffhanger, if Daya (Dascha Polanco) had the courage to pull the trigger against the jail guard. Reports say that the trouble brewing in the penitentiary will bring inmates closer together, and two of those characters will be Alex (Laura Prepon) and Piper (Taylor Schilling).
"Orange Is the New Black" season 5 is slated to debut on Netflix this June 9.
