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 Mandalorian season 3 finale gives the Star Wars series a much-needed reset
Bo-Katan holds up the Darksaber in The Mandalorian season 3 finale.

And just like that, The Mandalorian season 3 is over. Coming off a seemingly game-changing episode last week, the series’ highly anticipated season 3 finale, titled The Return, premiered this Wednesday on Disney+. To say that the episode wraps up all of The Mandalorian season 3’s remaining loose ends would be quite the understatement, too.

Not only does the finale give fans the climactic confrontation between Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), and Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) that they’ve long waited to see, but it also sets the latter two characters on totally different paths. For Bo-Katan, her role in the reconstruction of Mandalore seems to be just beginning. For Din Djarin, a new road has been laid out in front of him that isn't all that different from the one he used to walk.
