Orange Is the New Black
Drama/Comedy. Friday July 26. Netflix. Final season premiere.
OITNB is back for its final season and Netflix is being very ~cagey~ about what’s in store, even in the below preview. Will they bring closure to some of our favorite characters? Will we see the return of some old faces? We are very curious to hear how people react on Twitter to this finale.

No, seriously. Veronica Mars is back. The series originally premiered in 2004 on UPN, and ended in 2007 on The CW. And this week Hulu and Veronica (Kristen Bell) are picking up where we left off in this noir mystery set in Neptune, California. Excuse us while we obsess over this.
