WARNING: Season four spoilers ahead.
NETFLIX has released the Orange Is The New Black season five trailer — and it opens on last year’s epic cliffhanger.
The first look at the new season picks up where season four left off: in the tense aftermath of Poussey’s (Samira Wiley) death when Dayanara (Dascha Polanco) turned a gun on a Litchfield correctional officer.

“What I can tell you is that I was just as excited as all the fans were to see what happens next,” Laverne Cox, who plays Sophia Burset in the prison drama, told E! News about the new season.
“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.”
The Daily Telegraph reports Australian actress/model Ruby Rose is set to return to the hit Netflix show this year.
Rose’s breakout role as inmate Stella Carlin on the Jenji Kohan series saw her skyrocket to international prominence.
While the new trailer shows no sign of the former MTV star, it’s understood her character will appear later in the season and is set to cause a major shake-up for the inmates of Litchfield.
“She’s back together with all the girls on the show,” an insider on the show said. “They even went to Elton John’s Oscars Party together in March.”
The official release of the new trailer comes after pirated episodes from season five were posted online, with a hacker who had been holding them ransom carrying out a threat to release them after Netflix refused to pay.
Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black, season five, comes out on June 9.
