More than a year since the last season was released, the acclaimed prison comedy-drama “Orange Is the New Black” will return for season six on July 27.

The streaming service Netflix on Tuesday posted a teaser trailer on social media, showing the aftermath of last season’s siege at the fictional Litchfield Penitentiary in upstate New York. As smoke wafts across the cafeteria and a prison transport bus outside ferries away captured rioters, a narrator states, “This is a whole new world.”

Following the date, graphical text reads, “To the max” – a reference to the maximum-security sister facility sometimes seen in a series that has largely taken place at Litchfield’s minimum-security prison.

Two-time Emmy Award-winner Uzo Aduba as well as fellow cast-members Danielle Brooks and Selenis Leyva retweeted the 20-second video.

Additionally, Netflix announced that country-music icon Dolly Parton will appear in and serve as executive producer of an upcoming anthology series, with eight episodes each based on one of her songs.

“As a songwriter, I have always enjoyed telling stories through my music,” Parton, 72, said in a statement. “I am thrilled to be bringing some of my favorite songs to life with Netflix. We hope our show will inspire and entertain families and folks of all generations, and I want to thank the good folks at Netflix and Warner Bros. TV for their incredible support.”
