Laverne Cox Assures Fans That 'Orange is the New Black' Season Five is 'Really Juicy'

Laverne Cox is dishing the goods on the upcoming fifth season of Orange Is the New Black.

The 32-year-old actress kept it kind of vague, but said that she’s really excited about the new episodes.

“It is really juicy and really amazing,” Laverne told People. “If you’re a fan, and I’m a fan of the show even as a person who is on it, when I got the script I felt like I was tearing into it. When actually, it was on my iPad [and I was] scrolling down like, ‘What happens?’ because it was a cliffhanger at the end of season 4.”

She added, :Next season happens in three days, all 13 episodes happen in a three-day period. So we are jamming a lot in. A lot happens in that period of three days.”

Orange Is the New Black premieres on Friday, June 9 on Netflix.

Laverne Cox On Finally Meeting Beyoncé: 'I Met The Queen!'

Laverne Cox finally got to meet her idol Beyoncé at the 2017 Grammy Awards, and now, she’s dishing all about it!

“Stephen, I met the queen. I met the queen,” the 32-year-old entertainer expressed while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday evening (February 13) in New York City. “She sees me and her face lights up, and the moment she sees me she’s like ‘Help me up, help me up’.

Also during her interview, Laverne explained why she told the audience at the Grammys to google Gavin Grimm while presenting an award at the ceremony over the weekend.

“Anti-trans bathroom bills are not really about bathrooms,” Laverne told Stephen while talking about Grimm‘s case. “They’re about whether or not trans people have the right to exist in public space. Because if we can’t use public bathrooms, we can’t go to schools. We can’t work. We can’t go to health care facilities. So it’s really about us having a right to exist in public space, and I exist and I have a right to exist in public space.”
