'Orange Is the New Black' Season 5 Trailer Teases Uprising

The ladies of Litchfield are fighting back.

Following the death of Poussey (Samira Wiley) at the end of season four, Orange Is the New Black's fifth-season trailer shows an uprising of the prison inmates over the abusive conditions at the prison.

Released Tuesday, the official trailer shows the women taking control and teaming up to protest the powers that be.

"You've done a girl wrong, Mr. Caputo, and we want justice," Taystee (Danielle Brooks) says in the new footage.

The description for season five, which hits Netflix on June 9, also touches on the unrest about to unfold: "A riot sparked by Poussey's death quickly escalates when the inmates gain control of the prison. Once they get a taste of power, chaos ensues through the halls of Litchfield. In real time and over the course of just three days, season five of Orange Is The New Black will leave the inmates' lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve."

The release of the official trailer comes exactly a month ahead of the new season's release and just about a month after Netflix released the first three minutes of the powerful new season, in which Daya (Dascha Polanco) was seen with the gun she had obtained in last season's finale, pointing it at one of the Litchfield guards.

Star Taylor Schilling recently talked with THR about the new season's short time span and heightened stakes.

"In prison, the real stakes of your life are so heightened, it’s as heightened as it can be because your life is falling apart. But the collective stakes for the first time are heightened. Where everyone is dealing with the same crisis and has the same issue and in that, it’s really interesting to see alliances come together and what parts of people come to shine. It’s very cool to have everybody on the same mission together. There are some scenes where we’re all together [like last season's death scene], but this season still breaks it up a bit with all the characters."
