In the midst of the current political climate, Orange is the New Black continues to stay relevant when people need it the most.

Several stars from the Netflix prison dramedy — Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox, Danielle Brooks, Taryn Manning, Blair Brown and Samira Wiley — reunited for a panel at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood on Friday night where, following a screening of the season four finale, the cast discussed the direction of the series following the shocking death of Poussey Washington (Wiley).

“The prisoners have revolted and there’s a rebellion. An uprising happens and there’s a resistance happening in Litchfield,” said Cox, whose character, Sophia, was just released from solitary confinement. She added that “there’s a resistance that is happening in the country right now” that parallels the upcoming season-five storyline."

"It’s our responsibility as artists to reflect the time that we’re living in," said Samira Wiley on her character’s fate last season.
