The new season of OITNB takes place in real time and over the course of just three days.

The clip begins where Season 4 left off, with Litchfield in utter chaos – a riot sparked by Poussey’s untimely death combined with the rage and grief felt by the inmates. In the final moments, it all came to a head with a determined Daya (Polanco) holding a gun to the head of a prison security guard.

The critically acclaimed series has won three consecutive SAG Awards for outstanding ensemble in a comedy series, and Uzo Abuba — aka Crazy Eyes — got back-to-back wins in 2015 and 2016 for comedy supporting.

It also has been nominated for Best Comedy and Best Drama series at the Primetime Emmys.
