'Orange Is The New Black' season 6 is keeping Alex's fate secret till its release
Looks like even her girlfriend Piper can't seem to be able to get the answers for us this time around.
So the trailer for 'Orange Is The New Black' season 6 is here, and first things first, where is Alex? And what is this place? What about Litchfield? Are we even there? What is this maximum security they speak of? And why do the blues have a beef with the khakis?
There are so many questions revolving around the thrilling trailer of this Netflix original's sixth installment and clearly, it's going to take a while to get accustomed to the current ongoing situation our favorite inmates have trapped themselves in. But will they survive? Most importantly, are all of them even back?
"Where is Alex?" asks Piper, played by Taylor Schilling. And of course, we are finally grateful for her pointing out that Laura Prepon's character is missing. And almost as if following our minds, she shoots back, "Don't you think it's weird we're the only people in here?"
And even though the trailer has got all the show's fans riled up, the only questions people are asking is about Alex Vause, played by Laura Prepon. Alex is clearly one of the important cast members on the popular Netflix show, and she's been a part of the show ever since its first season back in 2013. But her absence from the season 6 promo puts a shadow on not only her future but also the combined future of Alex and Piper in the mix.
But on the other hand, it seems that the show's creators are extremely happy about fan reactions asking about Alex's absence from the season 6 trailer, because ever since the outrage sparked on social media over Alex not being a part of the new season's trailer, the producers of the show have given fans more fodder to fuel their speculations.

The makers of the Netflix original tweeted a video of Piper Chapman played by Taylor Schilling, playing classic game show Jeopardy. And the tweet is clearly breaking every OITNB fan's heart because at the end of every question posed to her, she has only one answer, "Where is Alex?"
Thankfully for us, it will not be too long before we'll (hopefully) find out what happened to Alex on the show since the new season is slated to drop on Netflix on July 27. Moreover, the fact that Prepon tweeted a photo of herself with Schilling where the duo seems to be chilling on set earlier this year, is a somewhat indication that she will be around at some point in the new season.
And while Alex's obvious absence from maximum security has been duly noted, Suzanne (Uzo Aduba) also mentions, "This isn't home. This is not home." The price the ladies have to pay for the season five finale's riot!
"It's very different here. These girls are psychos. My bunkie, she does four poops a day," shares Lorna, played by Yael Stone who just gave birth back in June. And yet that somehow isn't the strangest thing this season. The officials they have been assigned to are looking all over for answers regarding the prison riot the previous season had ended on and they are ruthless about putting absolutely anything to anybody!
