Here Is a Brief but Dramatic Look at the Fifth Season of Orange Is the New Black

It looks like the fifth season of Orange Is The New Black will waste no time in plopping us right back into the action, if this teaser for the fifth season (via Vulture) is any indication.

When we last left the inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary, Dayanara(Dascha Polanco) was pointing a gun at a particularly sadistic guard who was part of the new world order imposed upon them by the corporate overlords of the prison’s new owners — retaliation by riot for the recent wrongful death of a beloved inmate.

“If this is a real riot, do you think this is a step forwards or backwards for equality?” Piper asks Alex —classic Piper— before the two turn on their heels and walk quickly away from the action. There’s a gunshot and then a quick fade to orange, leaving us to speculate for the next couple of months about whether or not Daya shot the gun.


The fifth season reportedly takes place “in real time” over the course of three days, which means you’ll stay up past your bedtime to watch the whole thing as quickly as possible. If you don’t remember what happened in the fourth season, there’s still plenty of time to remind yourself via a rewatch: the fifth season premieres on June 9.

Ok, advise please. I still haven’t watched last season. I wasn’t in the mood for the something heavy when it debuted and I ended up spoiled and found out about Poussey.

I loved the first two seasons for the most part and found the 3rd meh, which added to my delay in watching 4.

My question is. Do you reccomend season 4? Are you sticking with it for 5?
