WATCH: New teaser released for season 5 of “Orange is the New Black” (and premiere date set)

Derek de Koff

Orange is the New Black is returning with what’s being touted as a particularly dark season of an already plenty-sinister show.

The fifth season of  Jenji Kohan’s prison dramedy premieres on Netflix June 9, letting fans experience the latest flurry of catlike machinations and double-crosses to plague the ladies of Litchfield.

An agonizingly brief 15-second teaser gives us a first look at what to expect after — spoiler alert — the tragic end and hair-tuggingly aggravating cliffhanger finale of season four.

You’ll see that all your favorites are returning (except the obvious one, whose name we will not include), including Alex (Laura Prepon), Piper (Taylor Schilling), Nicky (Natasha Lyonne), Flaca (Jackie Cruz), Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Lorna (Yael Stone), Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore), Maria (Jessica Pimentel), Red (Kate Mulgrew) and Gloria (Selenis Leyva).

Don’t worry. Laverne Cox is back too, but she’s not featured in the teaser.

Take a look and let us know what you think it all means.
