"Orange is the New Black" ended in a dramatic cliffhanger that left fans wanting more. The Netflix series is expected to return with a new season in 2017 and rumors about what's going to happen next in "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 are already flooding online.

It has been widely reported that Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) will meet her demise in "Orange is the New Black" Season 5. Schilling is expected to return to the series but rumor has it that she won't stay long. Although there's no credible source to support claims of Piper's imminent death, iDigitalTimes believe that the plotline is plausible.

Piper Chapman has made several enemies during her stay in the Litchfield penitentiary. The character has crossed paths with the Latina group in the prison. Toward the end of Season 4, inmates revolted causing trouble inside the prison walls. According to the report, it's possible that there will be accidental deaths from the uprising and Piper could be one of the unfortunate ones to go. Other reports suggest that "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 could be the last of the series if Piper is out of the picture. These rumors, however, haven't been confirmed and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, Lory Petty's Lolly is also expected to make a comeback in "Orange is the New Black" Season 5. Fans wonder if Lolly, who was last seen placed in a psychiatric ward, will return to the series and according to Petty, she might. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Petty believes Lolly will "absolutely" make an appearance in the next season. The character's return would mean that the series will touch on the issues of mistreating people with mental illness.

"Orange is the New Black" Season 5 is currently filming. The new season is expected to return to Netflix sometime in June 2017. Get more updates on the series here on GamenGuide.
