“Orange Is the New Black” season four is expected to premiere in June 2016.
No official premiere date has been announced for the upcoming season of the Emmy-winning comedy-drama series. Netflix Life however predicted that there is very strong possibility that it will be on the second Friday in June 2016.
All of the previous seasons of “Orange Is the New Black” season premiered in early June, Christian Today noted.
Netflix Life reported that OITNB would maintain its summer premiere because there are few competition during this season. The site pointed out that there aren’t that many shows launching at the same time that would be in direct competition for the Netflix hit series, other than HBO’s “True Detective.”
Meanwhile, another OITNB star is making a name in Broadway.
Kimiko Glenn, who plays Brook Soso, is set to appear in the musical adaptation of the 2007 film “Waitress,” Broadway World wrote.
Glenn also confirmed her Broadway appearance on Twitter but she is definitely not leaving OITNB.
“Waitress” follows the life of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. Jenna will be played by Jessie Mueller.
Glenn joined a cast that also includes Eric Anderson and Christopher Fitzgerald.
“Waitress” will open on April 24, 2016 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York, while previews will kick off on March 25, 2016.
In a separate report, Broadway World also noted that a number of OITNB stars have several Broadway roles under their belt.
Uzo Aduba is in “The Wiz Live!” and also appeared in “Coram Boy” and “Godspell” before her stint as Crazy Eyes in OITNB.
Danielle Brooks, who portrays Taystee, is set to play Sofia in a revival of “The Color Purple.” Kate Mulgrew, who plays Red, appeared in several Broadway musicals including “Equus,” “Black Comedy” and “Mary Stuart.”
