Orange is the New Black Season 5 has started filming for their first episode. However, there is still no confirmation about the return of one of the biggest characters this season, Lolly.
Lori Petty, who played the character of Lolly, believes that her character will return in Orange is the New Black Season 5. Recalling the last episode, Lolly was involved in an incident with Alex and the hitman sent to kill her. They succeeded to kill the hitman but Lolly was sent to the psychiatric ward.
“I certainly hope so. I do think we will. I can’t say for sure, but I absolutely think we will,” she told The Hollywood Reporter recently, of seeing Lolly again. “They are just now filming episode one [of season five] and you know how we ended season four. They have a lot to deal with right now! I’m just waiting on the phone call to get back on the plane. I’m sure it will come, but we have 13 episodes and they’ve got a lot to take care of, so we’ll see.”
Lori Petty was asked if entering a psychiatric ward would be the end of her role. She denied the claim and gave hints that the Orange is the New Black Season 5 might revisit the psychiatric ward.
“No. No. Here’s what I assume — and this is because it’s all about me, right? — we go into psych and Mr. Healy was there and I’m screaming and crying. I did some looping and I saw it and it looked great. Then I realize that they built a huge hallway with rooms and a whole set. So I’m thinking it’s going to be: Psych! Starring Lori Petty! [laughs] I just assumed they’d go to psych, like they go to the SHU. But I’m just making stuff up right now because I don’t know. But I saw the set and that’s what I thought.”
There is a possibility that Lolly will return in the middle of the Season 5 where most of the episodes will be taken in the psychiatric ward. Lolly will not be the first character to return from Maximum Security since Nicky and Sophia made it possible as well.
Orange is the New Black Season 5 is expected to air next summer. The first four seasons are already available for streaming on Netflix.
