Orange is the New Black Season 6
After the cataclysmic season five finale that left fans on the edge of their seats, the brand new season six will shed a light on what happened after the chaos that ensued at the prison. Previously on Orange is the New Black, Litchfield Prison had a massive riot that resulted in tragedy and heartbreak.
