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 lives hell. (ICYMI, we're left with Dayanara "Daya" Diaz pointing a gun at Humphrey, with many of the other prisoners encouraging her to shoot.)

Now, a first-look teaser trailer shows us what we can expect when the series returns for a fifth season that takes place over the course of just three days. Going by the end of this trailer, Piper Chapman and Alex Vause are looking to avoid the trouble as more inmates run toward the chaos with weapons in hand, while in the final moments, a gunshot rings out as the titles flood across the screen. Daya clearly does fire the gun, though did she just shoot the floor to scare Humphrey?

Along with the heart-pounding trailer are some new pictures that show Big Boo and Doggett, AKA Pennsatucky, inside the commissary, undoubtedly raiding the supplies after the riot.

Elsewhere, Taystee is seen with Cindy and company crowding around an iPad in what could be Caputo's office.

Crazy Eyes, who was badly hurt after being forced into a fight by Humphrey, 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."
