In anticipation of the unprecedented upcoming season of Orange Is The New Black, Netflix has released the heart-stopping first moments back in Litchfield with a short clip from the premiere episode of season five. Check it out below.
Season four of Orange Is The New Black left us on the edge of our seats-the ultimate cliff-hanger. An explosive riot sparked by Poussey’s untimely death combined with the rage and grief felt by the inmates quickly escalated into utter chaos: a determined Daya now has possession of a gun and its clear, no matter what the outcome, that life at Litchfield will never be the same.
Picking up right where we left off, season five takes you back to that contentious moment in the prison’s halls where decisions made will forever affect those inside, and outside the gates.
A riot sparked by Poussey’s death quickly escalates when the inmates gain control of the prison. Once they get a taste of power, chaos erupts in the halls of Litchfield. The unprecedented season will take place in real time and over the course of just three days, leaving the inmates’ lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve.
Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Jenji Kohan’s critically acclaimed series will continue to touch on timely and relevant social themes that drive daily headlines and remind us why, in its fifth season, Orange is the New Black remains an important cultural touchstone and continues to be an essential part of the national zeitgeist.
Orange Is The New Black Season Five Debuts Friday, June 9 on Netflix across all territories.
