The new teaser trailer picks up where season four ended, with Daya (Dascha Polanco) pointing a gun at one of the prison's new vicious guards, tables definitely turned. Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon) stumble across the scene, and make good on their new policy of avoiding trouble by leaving sharping. The clip ends with gunshot, although it seems likely that Daya has fired into the air to silence the baying mob around her. But who knows?
Orange is the New Black began life as a feminist drama about a WASP woman suddenly thrown into jail for drug smuggling. Over its first four seasons the narrative has spiralled beyond Piper Chapman's experience of adjusting from plush living to prison, to tell the stories of fellow inmates and prison officers.
After the most thrilling season yet, the tone is distinctly political – digging at the establishment, interacting with the Black Lives Matter movement and demonstrating extreme vulnerability – all without sacrificing the tenderness at the core of the show. We can't wait to see what's next.
Ahead of Orange Is the New Black‘s season five premiere, watch the new teaser trailer above.
