Orange Is the New Black"Orange Is the New Black" has always mined the comedy out of life in a women's prison, but in season 4, it seems things are taking a darker turn.

Netflix released the trailer for season 4, and changes are afoot: Litchfield is a for-profit prison now, there are 100 new inmates, scary new COs, and new beefs among the prisoners. Piper (Taylor Schilling) says she feels unsafe, a SWAT team looks like it's storming Litchfield, and Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) cries in pain on a hospital bed. And Red (Kate Mulgrew) appears to be locked in some kind of battle with one of those new COs.
The show isn't all-dark, of course — this is still a comedy. Taystee (Danielle Brooks) is a hilariously bad secretary for Caputo, while new addition Martha Stewart Judy King (Blair Brown) holds forth on the sexuality of women her age. And there's romance, like a sweet moment between Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Soso (Kimiko Glenn).

"Orange is the New Black" season 4 debuts on Netflix June 17.
