Netflix has compiled info to assist subscribers regardless of where they are in their viewing of its hit series “Orange Is the New Black.” The streaming service rolls out season four of the prison show today, and in recognition of the needs of binge watchers, Netflix determined which episodes you may want to focus on as you endeavor to get caught up.
The new season has been described as possibly the darkest so far in the series’ run — and also possibly the best. All 13 episodes of season four drop today, Friday, June 17.
Analyzing viewer data, Netflix determined that more than half of the “Orange” fans around the world have rewatched at least one full season of the series. The company surveyed fans in advance of today’s season four rollout and found that, to prepare for the new season, 21% planned to rewatch the previous season and 41% planned to watch all 39 episodes making up the first three seasons.
For those who choose to revisit just a few episodes, the service identified episodes that appear to be the most important — essentially the show’s first episode and the final two or three episodes of each season.
