Words By Fisayo Okare


Inmates keep fans on the edge with a new trailer for “Orange is the New Black” season 5. The Netflix’s award winning hit series is set to premiere on June 9th 2017. The series is based on Piper Kerman’s 2010 memoir, “Orange is the New Black: My year in a Women’s prison”, which documents her time at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison. After its first season, it became Netflix’s most watched original series and has since gone for five seasons with a projected run of seven seasons. It’s the first to score Emmy nominations in both comedy and drama categories and has gotten Uzo Aduba, American born Nigerian actress, two Emmy awards.

Although the plot details for the 5th season have not been disclosed, the 13 episodes to air will take place over the course of 3 days. It will be a tense season, with Poussey (as played by samira willey) dead, and returning actors including Uzo Aduba, and Laverne Cox amongst others.

The first episode picks up where season four left off. Inmate, Daya (Dascha Polanco) is pointing a gun at officer Thomas Humphrey (Michael Torpey) while chanting prisoners urge her to pull the trigger. While this is happening, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Alex Vause (Laura Prepon) are discussing their decision to refrain from being troublemakers when they come across the uproar going on. “Is this a real riot?” Piper asks. “If this is a real riot, do you think this is a step forward or backward for equality?” Alex pulls Piper away from the scene as she asks all her questions. The teaser ends with Daya still pointing the gun at Humphrey and while the scene fades a gunshot is heard.
