Orange Is The New Black: 7 Reasons To Be Excited For Season 6

6. Unlikely Alliances


During the past few series, OITNB has torn up the rulebook when it comes to friendships and after Big Boo and Pennsatucky’s burgeoning relationship from season 4 onwards, anything is possible.

One sub-plot that features heavily in the trailer is the introduction of coloured uniforms and different groups based on these colours. Whilst in Litchfield, groups were split broadly down racial lines with most friendships existing within these groups. However, the fight for survival in this new system will strain these existing friendships and lead to some new, and unexpected, ones.

The season 6 trailer has shown a number of these alliances already, including; Taystee and Flaca, and Pennsatucky and Crazy Eyes. However, especially with the ongoing investigation, these could rapidly change and it will be exciting to see how the inmates band together to survive.
