The first full-length trailer for Orange Is the New Black‘s fifth season was released Tuesday, and if you thought Litchfield had gone completely out of control before, well, you were wrong.
Season four ended with (spoiler) Dascha Polanco’s character Daya and a gun pointed at a prison guard, and the horrific death of Samira Wiley’s Poussey, so there was never any doubt that OITNB‘s next season would be action-oacked. But this new teaser gives us our first glimpse at just how far the chaos will spread.
The trailer begins similarly to the sneak-peek footage of the season released in April, with Daya poised to shoot, while a crowd of angry inmates cheers her on. Then, subsequent clips show the inmates in full protest mode, likely as a response to Poussey’s death. In various clips, the woman are running unmonitored through the prison halls, gathered together to make demands in the cafeteria, and colluding in the prison yard. “We’re all angry. You done a girl wrong, Mr. Caputo. We want justice,” Taystee tells the warden in one emotional scene.
In another clip, inmate Abdullah reads aloud a letter explaining the inmates’ organized stand against the guard. “To whom it may concern,” she says. “We, the inmates of Litchfield, are human beings. We are protesting the abusive conditions under which we are held.” Taystee, meanwhile, expands on the many abuses the inmates have endured in a voice-over. “We get beat for no reason. We stuffed four in a bunk like we factory chickens. We’re denied basic humanity.” Throughout the trailer the words Injustice, Justice, Rejection, Rebellion, Imprisoned, Empowered, and Stand up flash on screen. Just in case the message wasn’t clear.
In January, actress Danielle Brooks revealed that the entire season would take place over the course of just a few days. Brooks said on the SAG Awards red carpet, “Season five is done over the course of three days. You will watch 13 episodes, and find out what happens in the course of three days.”
