Netflix’s series, Orange is the New Black, has just released Season 3, but OITNB fans are already impatient for Orange is the New Black Season 4. What will Orange Is The New Black Season 4 bring? As of now, what we know is that the Orange is the New Black character of Laura Prepon, Alex Vause, will be returning in Season 4, and that Britney Spears might join on board.
Orange Is The New Black Season 3 ended with Alex Vause facing danger at the hands of Kubra’s men, with one of her old colleagues sneaking in Litchfield and confronting her. So, one of the big questions this coming season of Orange Is The New Black is “will Alex survive this confrontation?”
We have confirmed that Alex is back in Season 4 of Orange Is The New Black, and on top of that, she will be back inside Litchfield, as seen in her Instagram posts. In one of Laura Prepon’s Instagram account posts, she posts a photo of herself wearing her standard Orange Is The New Black look — eyeglasses and eyeliner — and holds up her prison badge. In another photo, she dons her prison garb, which is apparently a 23rd baron tank top.
Well, the Alex Vause-Piper Chapman loveteam is back on track with character Stella Carlin (played by Ruby Rose) out of the picture, so the Orange Is The New Black team might not be prepared to eliminate Alex from the series just yet.
Another star update for Orange Is The New Black Season 4, Britney Spears might be joining the prison crew. In an Entertainment Tonight interview with Taryn Manning, who plays OITNB character Pennsatucky, she gushes about Britney Spears and how she could totally rock it inside Litchfield Prison.
“Of course, I want Britney Spears everywhere you can see her. She’s the best.”
If Britney Spears were really to appear in Orange Is The New Black Season 4, what character should she portray? Would they make a character for Britney? Manning doesn’t think so because for her, Britney Spears can do anything brilliantly.
“Um, I mean, I don’t have to make up a character — she’s such a good actor that I feel like they could do anything with her. I was so impressed working with her I was like — she’s just very sincere in her acting, you know? It’s like everyone wanted to maybe hope that she’s not gonna be good but she was great.”
Well, this might actually not be as far-fetched as we may think, since Britney Spears is known to make cameos in popular TV shows. Were you able to spot Britney Spears appearing in How I Met Your Mother? Britney Spears had a short-lived character in How I Met Your Mother, dating Ted Mosby and Barney in the series. Britney Spears also appeared as TV host Amber Louise in Will & Grace, appeared in Kenan & Kel, and did a perfect cameo in Glee as a cheerleader. Britney Spears will also, soon, be gracing Jane The Virgin, so watch out for that.
If Britney Spears were to appear in Orange is the New Black season 4, it’s not the first time Manning will be able to work with her, which excites her to bits. Britney Spears and Taryn Manning have worked side-by-side with Zoe Saldana (hot chick Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy) in Crossroads in 2002. If Britney Spears were to drop by Litchfield in OITNB Season 4, then it’s going to be a big treat for Manning, who swears by Britney Spears’ angelic voice.
“There’s a very specific day [that stands out to me when I look back on the movie] — I was like ‘Sing, sing for me,’ right? ‘Cause everyone is like [Britney Spears] can’t sing. So I was like ‘Sing for me,’ I knew she could — she sang the National Anthem for me in the car — for us — and it was the most perfect thing I’ve ever heard and for anybody who thinks she can’t sing — she can sing like an angel.”
Orange is the New Black Season 4 is currently undergoing production and will be hitting the small screen again in 2016.
