'Orange Is the New Black' and other popular women’s prison shows
A new teaser reveals 'OITNB' returns for a final time on July 26
Women's prison shows—it seems like they've been with us forever. Well, in popular culture, they have been with us for going on half a century. And, if we're honest with ourselves, there's one thing these series tend to have in common: lesbian relationships. Whether dramas or comedies, female inmates on television do get paired together an awful lot. This phenomenon has produced some iconic couples (think 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Bad Girls'), so it's clearly working! What's more, it's working across the globe.
