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.

FYI: Laverne is wearing a Jonathan Simkhai dress.

Laura Prepon Doesn't Think Alex & Piper Will Ever Settle Down

Laura Prepon, Natasha Lyonne, Taylor Schilling, and Danielle Brooks attend the TimesTalk for Orange is the New Black on Friday (June 24) at the Times Center in New York City.

The ladies were joined by their co-stars Kate Mulgrew, Samira Wiley, and Uzo Aduba.

During the event, Laura answered a question about her character Alex and Taylor‘s character Piper possibly ending up together.

“There will never be any settling down for Alex and Piper, which is why it’s such a fun relationship to watch,” Laura said (via EW). “It’s just one of those things where you really can’t control where your heart goes. They love each other and they hate each other, and they manipulate each other and they help each other when they need it, but the thing that’s so great is that it’s always grounded in the reality that they do ultimately love each other. You’re always kind of rooting for them because of that genuine love.”
