‘Orange Is the New Black Mirror’ Brings Poussey to ‘San Junipero’
If you weren’t still crying over the absence of Poussey from Orange Is the New Black Season 5, a trip to “San Junipero” might get you there. Heaven is once again a place on Earth, as a new joint Orange and Black Mirror parody reunites Poussey and Taystee.
Weeks ahead of Orange Is the New Black’s Season 5 premiere (and months ahead of more Black Mirror), Netflix answered fan pleas to take us back to the latter’s “San Junipero.” This time, however, it’s Taystee (Danielle Brooks) and Poussey (Samira Wiley) who get a change to reunite in the digital ‘80s.
It’s just a dream, of course. And don’t ask us to figure out how Taystee is up on her Black Mirror, considering Orange Is the New Black first premiered in 2013, and supposedly follows Piper’s fifteen-month prison sentence. We’ll take all the Poussey we can get after Season 4.
You can watch the full parody above, and stay tuned for the official Orange Is the New Black Season 5 premiere on June 9.
