Will Daya pull the trigger? Fans will finally find out now that Netflix has revealed the Orange is the New Black season 5 premiere date.
The highly-acclaimed prison drama left a tense cliffhanger in the season 4 finale. A protest sparked at the prison after Taystee (Danielle Brooks) heard that Joe Caputo (Nick Sandow) has no plan to punish prison guard Bayley (Alan Aisenberg). Bailey accidentally suffocated Poussey (Samira Wiley) that caused her death.
As the inmates at the Litchfield Penitentiary mourn Pousey’s sudden death, Taystee incites the inmates to a riot. While prison guard Humphrey (Michael Torpey) along with McCullough (Emily Tarver) escorted Judy King (Blair Brown) out of prison, the protest began. Humphrey goes for the gun in his sock, but Maritza (Diane Guerrero) pushes him over.
Daya (Dascha Polanco) gets hold of Humphrey’s gun when it slides across to the Hispanic group. Daya was last seen pointing the gun at Humphrey’s head while all the inmates are urging her to pull the trigger.
Netflix announced the Orange is the New Black premiere date on June 9 along with a teaser. The clip shows the prisoners, one after the other, having their post-Poussey emotions. Alex (Laura Prepon), Piper (Taylor Schilling), Nicky (Natasha Lyonne), Flaca (Jackie Cruz), Taystee, Lorna (Yael Stone), Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore), Maria (Jessica Pimentel), Red (Kate Mulgrew) and Gloria (Selenis Leyva) were all featured in the teaser.
The season 5 trailer made it to Twitter bearing the slogan, “There’s no turning back.” Meanwhile on YouTube, it has the “Things will never be the same” caption.
What to Expect in Orange is the New Black Season 5 Premiere
Danielle Brooks warned that there will be “war” when the show returns in July. The actress was asked about the effect of Poussey’s tragic death on the upcoming season.
She told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s war. Taystee has nothing to lose, she’s lost everything that she cared so deeply about. It’s time to fight.”
Brooks earlier revealed that the upcoming season consists of 13 episodes. She further teased that it will only run for three days.
“…it will be very detailed, very intense, and you better get ready. Get your popcorn, your tissues, everything. I don’t know when it’s coming out because they never tell us, but sometime in the summer,” she further told E! News.
