Orange Is the New Black season 4 ended on a tense cliffhanger with the inmates of Litchfield revolting against the new hard-line guards who killed Poussey and made their life hell.
It ended with Dayanara "Daya" Diaz (Dascha Polanco) pointing a gun at horrid guard Humphrey, with many of the other prisoners encouraging her to shoot.
Now, a first look teaser trailer has shown us what we can expect when the series returns – and going by the end of this trailer, Piper Chapman and Alex Vause are looking to avoid the trouble, as more inmates runs towards the chaos with weapons in hand.
The final moments of the Netflix trailer hear a gunshot ring out as the titles flood across the screen, so it looks like Daya WILL fire the gun, although it remains unclear if she'll just shoot the floor to scare him.
Season 5 will take place in real-time and over the course of just three days, as the repercussions of the riot play out.
Along with the exciting new trailer some new pictures show Big Boo and Doggett – aka "Pennsatucky" – inside the commissary, undoubtedly raiding the supplies after the riot.
Elsewhere, Taystee is seen with Cindy and co crowding around an iPad – perhaps perusing Digital Spy – in what could be Caputo's office.
Crazy Eyes was badly hurt after being forced into a fight by the guard that Daya might shoot, Humphrey, and now she can be seen recovered and helping another patient.
Finally, it seems that the guards will gain some control over the riot, as Piper, Alex and another inmate are seen huddled on the floor, as they normally do when an alarm sounds.
The synopsis for the new series explains:
"Season 4 of Orange Is the New Black left us on the edge of our seats. An explosive riot sparked by Poussey's untimely death combined with the rage and grief felt by the inmates quickly escalated into utter chaos. In the final moments, it all comes to a head with a determined Daya now in possession of a gun – and it becomes clear that, no matter what the outcome, life at Litchfield will never be the same.
"Picking up right where we left off, season 5 takes you back to that contentious moment in the prison's halls where decisions made will forever affect those inside, and outside the gates.
"Based on the best-selling memoir by Piper Kerman, Jenji Kohan's critically acclaimed series will continue to touch on timely and relevant social themes that drive daily headlines and remind us why, in its fifth season, Orange Is the New Black remains an important cultural touchstone and continues to be an essential part of the national zeitgeist."
Orange Is the New Black season 5 debuts Friday, June 9 on Netflix.
