Alex (Laura Prepon) is briefly seen with Chang (Lori Tan Chinn) and Lolly (Lori Petty) as a guard sends the inmates scurrying with an airhorn, and a team of emergency service officers are shown rushing into Litchfield.
"What's cool is Season 4 actually picks up right where Season 3 left off," Prepon, whose character's fate was left hanging in the Season 3 finale, told Entertainment Weekly in January. "So [it] literally continues five seconds later."
"This season I think is one of our best by far, and I think the fans are going to be really happy," she added. "Our writers are so good and [series creator] Jenji [Kohan] is just so awesome."
"Orange is the New Black" follows Piper (Taylor Schilling), a privileged 30-something woman who is sentenced to 15 months in a women's federal prison. The series premiered on Netflix in 2013 and will return for a fourth season June 17.
