The Telegraph

“I’m gangsta… like, with an a at the end,” declares the increasingly insufferable Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) in the season four opener of addictive Netflix prison drama Orange is the New Black.

Other seasons of OITNB have started slowly, but this one’s a banger from the outset and we’re delighted and relieved that the drama shows no signs of letting up.

The Hollywood Reporter

Early episodes of season four are as compelling and entertaining and as well-written and acted as they have been for the past three, which is a tremendous achievement (particularly if it holds – which is likely, but not guaranteed).

It has evolved into a show in which the initial main character, Piper (Taylor Schilling), has been deftly supplanted by an impressive, immense cast whose stories have set the hook in viewers and are the reason the series remains vibrant and entertaining without any clear sign of creative fatigue.

Entertainment Weekly

The best thing about Orange is the New Black—the enormous number of phenomenal performers—might ultimately be what makes it unsustainable as one of TV’s best dramas.

Piper is still running her soiled-underwear crime ring, only she’s now competing with Maria (Jessica Pimentel) for the title of kingpin.

It’s a grim season, but there are still enough great one-liners to remind you why Orange has earned a best-comedy nod from the Emmys.

TV Guide

The cast and creators have remained notoriously tight-lipped about Season 4 during Orange’smonths-long hiatus, but one thing that those connected with the show have teased is that the new season is darker. While that’s certainly true in some respects, Orange has also reclaimed its humor, in the early episodes at least. The first part of the season strikes more of a balance between comedy and drama than Seasons 2 and 3 did, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments into the more serious muck. Things don’t really take a turn for the dark until the season’s final hours, with a heartbreaking twist that will stick with viewers long past when their binge-watch is done.

But what about Piper, you might ask? Just kidding – no one is asking that question. Orange producers have seemingly come to terms with the fact that Piper is one of Litchfield’s least interesting inmates. But, her storylines in Season 4 are compelling because she finally starts to suffer some significant, realistic consequences for her asinine actions – which, if you can believe it, only amplify in Season 4. And they go far beyond a slap on the wrist or a few days in the SHU. It’s a much more believable (and at times, darkly humorous) depiction of what would happen to someone like power-hungry Piper Chapman in a real prison.
