‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 4: Ruby Rose Not Returning?


Fans of “Orange is the New Black” are still hoping that Stella Carlin will return in the upcoming season of the Netflix hit series. However, even Ruby Rose, who played Stella Carlin, admitted that she has no idea if her character will come back in season four.

In an interview in July, Variety asked Rose if she will be coming back on OITNB.

Rose said: “I don’t actually know. With Jenji, literally anything could happen. But I think they’ve already started shooting in New York and I’m obviously not in those episodes. I think if Stella were to come back, it would be a pretty hefty storyline. She wouldn’t just be coming back happy about the situation.”

In the previous season, Stella was taken to Maximum Security after Piper Chapman, portrayed by Taylor Schilling, framed her.

Stella and Piper became close in season three until Piper found out that the profits of her illegal dirty undergarments business were missing. She learned that Stella took the money and Piper took revenge by planting contraband in Carlin’s living space, iDigitalTimes wrote.

The site noted one popular fan theory on what may happen with Rose’s character in OITNB. Fans speculated Stella will come into contact with another Litchfield Penitentiary inmate, who is also in Maximum Security – Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne).

The last scene of season 3 hinted that the corporation running the prison wants to further increase their profits from the prison, hence there may be a possibility that the Maximum Security will be shut down to cut down expenses. This would mean Maximum Security prisons will be making their way back to Litchfield’s main.

“Orange is the New Black” season four is set to premiere in the summer of 2016.

Meanwhile, Rose also received backlash following her post on social media about Paris attacks.

The Australia actress shared a picture in which she asked her 5.6 million followers on Instagram and more than 1 million on Twitter to “pray for the entire world”, in contradiction to recent popular hashtag #PrayforParis.


Several of fans replied and asked her to delete the post, which some called “disrespectful”, while others agreed with the actress’ post and thanked her.


The OITNB star later clarified her tweet and reminded her fans of the other attacks that happened on the same day of the Paris attacks.
