As the trailer indicates, the Litchfield prisoners suddenly find themselves in power at the prison, and this new dynamic creates its own share of problems for the inmates — and makes them acutely aware of what they truly want from life.

The fifth season of Orange is the New Black was recently subjected to its own set of problems when a hacker stole and released the first 10 episodes of the 13-episode season after demanding a ransom from Netflix. The FBI is currently investigating the security breach.

The Season 5 premiere will be directed Andrew McCarthy, who directed several prior episodes of the series, from a script penned by series creator Jenji Kohan. McCarthy also directed the Season 3 and Season 4 premiere episodes. The series was renewed for seasons 5-7 in 2016.

Orange is the New Black was initially based on Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, which chronicles the time she served in Federal Correctional Institution Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison in Connecticut. Since its premiere in 2013, the series has gone on to earn multiple Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations and wins, and is the first series to receive Emmy nominations in both comedy and drama categories.

The fifth season of Orange is the New Black will premiere Friday, June 9, on Netflix.
