"Orange is the New Black" returns to Netflix in June, but the wait got a little shorter on Thursday thanks to the release of some brand new images from Season 4.
The streaming service dropped nine new promo images from the series and it looks like several of the characters, including Laverne Cox's Sophia Burset and Taylor Schilling's Piper Chapman, are in intense situations when the show returns.
Earlier this year, Laverne told Access Hollywood that Season 4 brought her new challenges as an actress.
"I was really blessed to be really challenged in Season 3 of 'Orange.' In Season 4, we see a completely different side of Sophia that we've never seen before," Laverne previously told Access. "I've never had to play this kind of story line, these kinds of colors emotionally and dramatically, and it was really hard and it was really -- I would often leave at the end of the day like in a horrible state of mind, but that's part of the job. I just am really blessed. Honestly, for me as an artist, as an actress, I want to be pushed, I want to be challenged, I want it to be scary."
"Orange is the New Black" Season 4 drops on June 17 on Netflix.
