Netflix on Tuesday released the first minute from the fifth season of Jenji Kohan’s prison dramedy, which picks up exactly where the fourth season left off.
The footage from the premiere episode shows Daya (Dascha Polanco) holding the gun she had obtained in last season’s finale and, according to the clip, the season is set to start off with a bang.
The fifth season of OITNB will take place in real time over the course of three days and is being described as an “unprecedented” season. The series usually keeps the time span of its seasons vague, so as to not explicitly give away how much time is left on characters’ sentences, and a three-day season is the shortest amount of time yet for the Taylor Schilling starrer to unfold.
