Are any Orange is the New Black actors starring on Teenage Bounty Hunters?
At the time of writing, this is a solid no. None of the actors from Orange Is the New Black has been confirmed to star in Teenage Bounty Hunters.
We do find this quite surprising as many production companies and producers like to use actors that they already have an established relationship with.
What is the production status of Teenage Bounty Hunters?
Official Production Status: Post-production (Last Updated: 21/07/2020)
Filming had begun on the series in the Summer of 2019, starting on July 4th, and ending on November 30th, 2019.
Production was handled by Tilted Productions who also produced episodes for OiTNB and GLOW.
All of the filming took place in Georgia. This as quite significant as at the time as the ‘Heartbeat Bill’ was highly discussed in the media. If the Bill had been passed, this could have impacted the future of the series and its filming locations. It must be noted that Georgia was selected as a location for filming before the controversial Bill was raised.
Many actors and influential figures in Hollywood came forward to protest the bill with many threatening to refuse to film in the region if the bill passed.
How many episodes will Teenage Bounty Hunters season one air?
Teenage Bounty Hunters will air ten episodes. All ten episodes will be available upon release.
Episode run times?
There’s currently no confirmation on episode run times. If we compare the run times of other originals, we can expect Teenage Bounty Hunters episodes to be around forty-five to fifty minutes.
Will Teenage Bounty Hunters arrive in 4K?
Most definitely. The majority of Originals now arrive in 4K and Teenage Bounty Hunters will follow suit.
To stream the Original in UHD you will need a premium Netflix subscription, a 4K device, and an internet connection capable of maintaining 25Mbps.
Has Netflix released a trailer for Teenage Bounty Hunters?
Netflix has yet to release a trailer for Teenage Bounty Hunters. We can expect to see a trailer arrive in the Spring of 2020, this is because filming is still ongoing.
How many seasons can we expect to see of Teenage Bounty Hunters?
Not to state the obvious but this entirely depends on the popularity of the series. Netflix is known for ordering titles one season at a time and Teenage Bounty Hunters fit into that category.
Very few titles have multiple seasons ordered at once, but we can compare the future of the Original to OItNB.
Orange Is the New Black was extremely popular, running for eight seasons, but by the end, the audience had begun to shrink. If Slutty Teenage Bounty Hunters can earn even half of the popularity of the of OItNB, then we can expect to see plenty more.
