Mexican Telenovela Icon Itatí Cantoral Stars in 'OITNB's' Newest Teaser
*cries in Spanish*
Orange Is the New Black’s 5th season drops on June 9th, and Netflix has amped up its marketing with a genius crossover between OITNB’s Flaca (Jackie Cruz), Maritza (Diane Guerrero), and Soraya Montenegro (Itatí Cantoral) from the beloved telenovela Maria la del Barrio. The promo depicts Flaca at her bunk in Litchfield confronting a new inmate in her space before she realizes it's Soraya and then freaks out in the best way. Soraya screams, emotes, and chews the scenery like she does in her telenovela, but rather than fear her, Flaca loves it so much grabs her best friend Maritza to see who turned up in orange.
The hilarious crossover promo is the second one OITNB has crushed this season. Last week, the series dropped a promo in which Samira Wiley returned as Poussey to meet Taystee (Danielle Brooks) in the afterlife that is the very queer "San Junipero" in a Black Mirror episode, which starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis as a couple in the great beyond.
Of course, Maritza loses her mind over Soraya in her orange jumpsuit, but the twist comes when Lea DeLaria’s Big Boo shows up and says to Soraya, “I know you! You’re so hot. Do it, do it. Cry in Spanish.” Cue the four inmates in the promo crying in Spanish.
