***WARNING*** Contains Season 4 Spoilers of Orange is the New Black.
Season 4 of Orange is the New Black (OITB) ended off with a bang (literally). Well, the chaos continues on June 9th as Netflix’s hot show will drop all of its Season 5 episodes for your binging needs.
When we last left off, Alex got away with murder, Poussey went to the light, and Daya had a gun in Humphrey’s face. And then we heard the shot.
So what happens in Season 5?
The inmates are fed up, and they’re not going to take it. The days following Poussey’s untimely death, the residents of Litchfield are angrier than ever. In the second official trailer released earlier this month, Taystee said, “We get beat for no reason…We’re denied basic humanity.”
Caputo is losing control of Litchfield County. After covering up the murder of Poussey, he is about to butt heads with his most trusted employee, Taystee. With media scrutiny growing, and his loss of allies in the penitentiary, Caputo turns to his father for support.
SoSo will learn to cope as she lives her life without Poussey.
Piper and Alex try to stay under the radar while still fighting for inmate rights.
Plus, a new leader is coming to the penitentiary.
And what about the gun shot?
As Dascha Polanco, the actress who plays Daya, said to The Hollywood Reporter, cooler heads may have actually prevailed when the screen went black on Season 4. Polanco stated, “She might pull back and think about being a mother and not wanting to miss the opportunity of being with her child. But a woman going through postpartum — at that point, they’re very fragile and very sensitive.”
Season 5 of Orange is the New Black will be available on June 9. Here’s the official trailer to hold you over until then!
