Netflix has released a new trailer for Orange is the New Black‘s third season ahead of its debut next month.

Orange is the New Black Trailer

In the latest tease for the third season of Orange is the New Black, there are some flashbacks to scenes from previous seasons, reminding viewers of why Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is behind bars in the first place – smuggling drug money – and her relationship with Alex (Laura Prepon), who ran the drug smuggling ring.

The trailer also shows Poussey (Samira Wiley) having a tough time in prison, admitting, “I just feel like this place is beating me down.” Taystee (Danielle Brooks), who seems to be close to her prison pal again, tells her, “You gotta admit you can’t do it alone.”

A less likely bonding duo are also captured in the 1:48 sneak peek – Big Boo (Lea DeLaria) and Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning).  “Cheers to heaven or hell and nothing in between,” says Big Boo as she clinks glasses with the formerly homophobic Pennsatucky on the floor of a prison cell.

As for Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), she seems back to being her more optimistic self, preaching, “It’s good to have something to believe in. Once you know Santa Claus isn’t real, it’s all down hill from there.”

Piper, likely onto her next prison project, pitches Morello (Yael Stone), Big Boo and Yoga Jones (Constance Shulman) on showing the world the many aspects of prison life. “People think all we do is have lesbian sex and strip searches and naked cat fights in the shower,” she says with a knowing smile. After a pause, she adds, “We also do other things.”

Orange is the New Black‘s third season will hit Netflix June 12.
