We return to Litchfield Penitentiary tonight to find the prison running riot following the unjust death of Poussey Washington. The inmates were shaken into action when season four closed on a teeth-clenching cliffhanger – Dayanara pointing a gun at one of the guards.
Taking place over the following three days, season five has been promised to be the most outrageous yet. The inmates are done. They know what they want and they will stop at nothing to get it. The prison is thrown into chaos, ranks and reputation have been stripped and it’s the quietest characters that are coming out top.
Full of energy and action, season five is certainly a new approach to the normally structured, if twisted, workings of the female prison.
Orange Is The New Black, Season Five – Available to stream from Friday 9 June 2017
