When Netflix's hit series "Orange Is the New Black" returns in June, you can expect to find the women of Litchfield Penitentiary at their breaking point as tensions and hostility will escalate rather quickly in the opening scene of Season 5.
The streaming company has released today a first-look peek at the Season 5's opener, and things don't look too good for one of the correctional officers as inmate Dayanara Diaz (played by Dascha Polanco) has a gun pointed at his face. An angry mob surrounds them as they demand Diaz "to shoot him in the head." Could this mean a prison riot is bound to happen?
The new season of the women-in-prison series will immediately take place after the events of the Season 4 finale. The new season will also take a unique approach, as the entire fifth season will unfold over the course of three days in real time.
"Orange Is the New Black: Season 5" is due to premiere Friday, June 9th.
A privileged New Yorker ends up in a women's prison when a past crime catches up with her in this Emmy-winning series from the creator of "Weeds."
