Remember way back to last June when season four of OITNB came out and you binge watched the whole thing only for it to end in disaster?
You remember… The death of fan favorite, Poussey (Samira Wiley), and the riot that ended at the hands of Daya (Dascha Polanco) and the gun she acquired.
Although you have to wait a little longer to find out if sweet Daya pulls the trigger, we did get a premiere date. #blessed

But that’s not all. We are also treated to a teaser with some hidden messages. Take a look below!
The teaser was posted with these ominous captions to YouTube and Twitter, respectfully.
Things will never be the same. There’s no turning back.
What do these messages mean?!? Are they spoilers?
I have more good news for you guys too! It’s been revealed that this season will have 15 episodes and will take place over three days! Taystee herself (Danielle Brooks) told E! News this bit of news at the SAG Awards.
Even Piper (Taylor Schilling) weighed in saying “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.”
OITNB season 5 premieres Friday, June 9 on Netflix.
