First Look At The Return Of Orange Is The New Black, Season 5
As fans of the ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary will remember, Season 4 of Orange Is The New Black left us on the edge of our seats. An explosive riot sparked by Poussey’s untimely… accident… combined with the rage and grief felt by the inmates quickly escalated into utter chaos.
In the final moments, it all comes to a head with a determined Daya now in possession of a gun… and it becomes clear that, no matter what the outcome, life at Litchfield will never be the same. Picking up right where we left off, season five takes you back to that contentious moment in the prison’s halls where decisions made will forever affect those inside, and outside the gates.
In a change of tack for this season, the show will take place in real time, and over the course of just three days, leaving the inmates’ lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve.
Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Jenji Kohan’s critically acclaimed series will continue to touch on timely and relevant social themes that drive daily headlines and remind us why, in its fifth season, Orange is the New Black remains an important cultural touchstone and continues to be an essential part of the national zeitgeist.
Orange Is The New Black Season 5 debuts Friday, 9th June 2017, exclusively in all Netflix territories.
