Orange Is the New Black is out early, on account of bad behavior.
Season 5 of the Netflix prison dramedy — which is not scheduled for release until Friday, June 9 — has been partially leaked by an anonymous hacking group known as “The Dark Overlord,” our sister site Variety confirms.
According to the report, the season premiere first began circulating on illegal file-sharing website Pirate Bay on Friday. Episodes 2-10 were subsequently leaked on Saturday after Netflix reportedly refused to pay the hackers an undisclosed amount of money to keep the episodes offline.
OITNB Season 5 picks right where the Season 4 finale left off — with all hell breaking lose at Litchfield in the wake of Poussey’s death. All 13 episodes will take place in real time and over the course of three days, “leaving the inmates’ lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve,” per the official logline.
The hackers responsible for the OITNB leak are said to have their hands on other unreleased shows from ABC, Fox, National Geographic and IFC. Per the piracy-news website TorrentFreak, the episodes were stolen in an attack on post-production studio Larson Studios in late 2016.
