Orange Is the New Black season 5 begins with a bang in first look teaser
On Tuesday, Netflix released a new first look teaser trailer that picks up right where the intense fourth season finale left off with the riot that broke out after the tragic death of Poussey (Samira Wiley). While Daya (Dascha Polanco) stares down the barrel of a gun aimed at one of the prison’s oppressive guards, fellow inmates Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Alex Vause (Laura Prepon) stroll down the hallway discussing their plans to keep their heads low when they stumble upon the intense gathering.
“S—, is this a real riot? This is a real riot. If this a real riot, do you think this is a step forwards or backwards for equality,” says Piper.
“I don’t care, and we’re getting out of here now,” says Alex as she drags Piper away.
As they run the other way, Dascha begs the women egging her on to be quiet. But then, the clip cuts to black. We hear a gunshot and a collective gasp from all of the women.
We’ll have to wait until June 9, when the complete fifth season hits Netflix, to find out who survived the confrontation.
Jenji Kohan’s absorbing ensemble dramedy, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, takes viewers inside the walls of Litchfield, a minimum security women’s prison where nothing’s as simple as it seems—especially the inmates.
