OITNB fans, get excited because not only did the first trailer for season 5 just drop, but we’ve also got a release date! 

Get your snacks, your friends and clear your schedule. OITNB is about to grace our face yet again. 

Your wait for more Orange Is the New Black is almost over… ALMOST… And By Almost, I mean you’ve got about 4 more months. The 

Netflix prison dramedy announced its anticipated fifth season will premiere on Friday, June 9. We have learned this through a tweet featuring a teaser video involving all your favorite inmates. 

The Tweet was captioned “There’s no turning back” and they titled the teaser saying “Things will never be the same” 

If you remember, season 4 ended on a HUGE cliffhanger. SPOILER ALERT – After Poussey’s death at the ends of a guard, all the prisoners begin to riot. And there were guns involved... It was a whole thing. 

We don’t know too much about the fifth season, as Netflix is staying hush-hush but it was revealed that the entire season will take place over the course of 3 days. Taylor Schilling told E! News QUOTE: "I think the stakes are higher in this season than they have been in a while just by virtue of the compressed time and seeing people in compressed circumstance really raises the stakes. It's exciting to watch, I think for all of us."

Laverne Cox also weighed in saying “"What I can tell you is that I was just as excited as all the fans were to see what happens next. When I read it, it was incredible, when we shot it, it was…intense. It's really, really intense.” 

I guess we’ll have to wait until the new season airs on Nextflix come June 9 but I do what to know what all of you are thinking about the trailer as well as what you think we can expect about this upcoming season?
