The launch date may still be months away but Orange Is The New Black fans have been sent into a flurry after a Season Five teaser was leaked.
Listen to hosts Laura Brodnik and Tiffany Dunk discuss the Orange Is The New Black bombshell on The Binge.
“It takes place over three days,” she said.
“It will be very detailed, very intense, and you better get ready.”
Podcast host Laura Brodnik explained how the information had fallen into the fan pool like blood into a shark tank.
“That one little comment that Danielle dropped on the red carpet while they were asking about her dress, has just thrown fans into chaos – it’s amazing,” she said.
Laura speculated about how the shortened timeline could handicap the series in terms of thematic versatility.
“The whole show is going to be during the prison riot which I just feel like it’s going to be very tense and sad and difficult TV to watch for a whole season,” she said.
Laura also commented on how this thematic restriction could trickle down to individual characters.
“There’s not going to be a lot of room for the characters to grow,” she said .
“It’s a bold choice but it’s going to be incredibly claustrophobic.”
