Sorry, not sorry: Orange is the New Black season 3 trailer is here

Orange Is The New Black - Season 3 - Official Trailer [HD]
How bad-ass has Piper become now? The trailer for the third season of popular Netflix original series Orange is the New Black has been released, and boy, it’s a doozy.

From black eyes to new (and returning?) inmates, bouts of tears, philosophical ramblings, fights, threats, and wait, why is Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) in plainclothes? It’s bound to be yet another exciting season. Sorry, not sorry, seems to be theme. And that, as regular viewers know, could be interpreted in a number of ways.

The show’s premise is based on the real-life story of average, pretty-blonde city girl Piper Kerman – a self-described WASP – who spent a year in a women’s prison after canoodling with the wrong girl and getting mixed in a money laundering scheme. The title character, Piper Chapman, is played by Taylor Schilling, and the female love interest played by Laura Prepon (That 70s Show.) Naturally, Piper doesn’t quite fit in with the rough-around-the-edges inmates, who have been locked up for everything from drugs, to theft, and other petty crimes. Piper just isn’t quite cut from the same cloth. Though a few months in prison has certainly rattled the young woman.

True to earlier confirmations, Jason Biggs, who played Chapman’s fiancé in the first two seasons, is nowhere to be seen in the trailer for season 3. But all our lovable favourites are back for more, including “Crazy Eyes” (Uzo Aduba), “Taystee” (Danielle Brooks), Poussey (Samira Wiley), “Red” (Kate Mulgrew), and even the troubled and lonely-yet-caring Assistant to the Warden, Joe Caputo (Nick Sandow). Interestingly,  we see far more of other inmates in the trailer than we do of Piper herself.

When we left the prison crew at the end of season 2 last year, (spoiler alert), villain Vee was run down by a dying Rosa, who clearly wanted to leave her mark before passing on by cleaning up house for her girls. What drama will face them next?

There are still a few months to go, though, before you can check in on Piper, Red, Crazy Eyes, and the rest of the female jailbird crew – the entire season will be available for your streaming pleasure starting June 12.

The Witcher season 3’s ending, explained
Geralt battles soldiers in the woods in The Witcher season 3.

The Witcher season 3 premiered its three final episodes on July 27, bringing the show's most ambitious and fully-realized season to a close. Henry Cavill stars -- for the last time -- as Geralt of Rivia, joining Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg and Freya Allan as Ciri. The last three episodes pick up immediately where the first five left off, with the infamous Thanedd coup happening and the reveal that Vilgefortz is allied with Nilfgaard.

The second half of season 3 features many major plot elements that book fans will already know about, especially those who recently read Time of Contempt. However, those unfamiliar with The Witcher's novels might have some lingering questions about what exactly happened during the episode, so here's a breakdown of the main plot points and how the Netflix show says goodbye to Henry Cavill.
