Be still my beating heart.
Netflix has pulled out all the stops with their newest teaser, which spruiks the upcoming release of Orange is the New Black‘s fifth season, as well as hinting new adventures in the Black Mirror universe.
The teaser opens with Taystee (Danielle Brooks) dreaming of Tucker’s ’80s-themed bar. Poussey (Samira Wiley) is waiting at the bar with a drink that’s 110% better than anything she brewed at Litchfield.
The teaser is an homage to the least Black Mirror-esque episode of all. The one Techly has already raved about. Taystee and Poussey have assumed the roles of escapist lovers, Yorkie and Kelly.
The very existence of Poussey in the San Junipero universe gives all OITNB fans a sense of hope, and a temporary reprieve for Taystee.
I know the teaser has been named ‘Orange is the new Black Mirror’ for shits and giggles, but a tiny piece of me is hoping for a Netflix-produced spinoff somewhere down the line.
Watch the damn thing yourself and tell me you aren’t hoping for the same thing.
