The inmates, the inmates, are trapped, trapped, T-R-A-P-P-E-D in maximum security prison. The first official full-length trailer for Season 6 of Orange Is the New Black just dropped, showing us a glimpse of the aftermath of the nail-biting Season 5 finale. It looks like the ladies of Litchfield are having a tough time adjusting to their new home, which isn’t very much like their old home. They’re terrified, and we’re pretty terrified wondering what’s going to happen to them.
“This isn’t home, this is NOT home,” says Suzanne. “It’s very different here,” says a scared Morello, noting that their new prison mates are “psychos” (in her defense, it’s because they…poop a lot). And TBH, Morello — who is a bit bonkers herself — declaring that her own roommate is nuts is saying something.
While the trailer is devoid of the main plot, here’s what we know: First off, the prisoners are assigned a color — blue, khaki, and/or pink — and for the first time, it appears that they are not divided by race. Piper tells a pink-clad Suzanne that blues and khakis have beef with each other, while pinks are the only ones who are safe, to which Suzanne replies, “navigating adult female friendships is so complicated!” And tbh, SAME.
In addition to the struggle of adapting to a new facility, the ladies are also under intense interrogation regarding last season’s riot. The investigators are determined to crack them down, but knowing Piper, Red, Taystee, and the rest of the crew, they will fight tooth and nail to protect each other’s backs.
From the looks of it, Season 6 is about to be just as crazy as the previous seasons — maybe even more so. What do their uniform colors mean? Will the ladies ever return to Litchfield? Will the riot investigation end up in a disaster? Where in the world is Alex? And holy crap, is that Lolly at the 1:22 mark?
Orange is the New Black Season 6 hits Netflix on July 27th.
