YAAAAAS Queen! The first teaser trailer for Orange Is the New Black Season 5 has just dropped and it looks like we should get ourselves prepared for a big bang.
The dramatic teaser opens in Litchfield where Daya (Dascha Polanco) has a gun aimed at the head of corrections officer Thomas Humphrey (Michael Torpey). Shouting inmates surround the scene, as Alex and Piper approach.
Season 5 of “Orange Is the New Black” picks up following Poussey’s (Samira Wiley) untimely death, which sparks the riot shown in teaser. According to information from the shows creators, the season will take place over the course of three days, as the repercussions of the riot play out.
Laverne Cox who plays transgender inmate Sophia Burset on the show told E! the new season was “really, really good.” And further said:“What I can tell you is that I was just as excited as all the fans were to see what happens next. When I read it, it was incredible, when we shot it, it was…intense. It’s really, really intense. It manages…as intense as it all is, it still manages to have an irreverence and a spin that is funny and thoughtful.”
It wouldn’t be Orange is the New Black without being a little intense, so we cannot wait to see how the show will progress in its fifth season. And for those of you freaking out that this could be the end for our favourite Litchfield inmates, don’t fear, because the show has been renewed to season seven.
