Orange is the New Black season 2 information, including spoilers but not including the premiere date, have been coming out.
Let’s check out everything we know so far:
-Filming was almost done as of mid-January. “We’re almost done, we’re two episodes away from wrapping the season,” Nathasa Lyonne (Nicky Nichols) told Gotham magazine.
-But the filming was still happening as of January 31, with Jodie Foster directing an episode (the season finale?) that was shot on the Main Street in Riverhead, New York. It included a scene at the Suffolk Theater.
-Larry is going to do something after figuring out that he’s kind of a victim, Jason Biggs told Entertainment Weekly. At first, he wants to support Piper, but he realizes he needs to take care of himself. “But to what extreme, and how far should he take that exactly? Ultimately, he ends up taking advantage of Piper and the situation she’s in, and becomes a little greedy and a little questionable.”
Biggs elaborated to TVGuide that Larry will have to decide whether to reconcile with his former fiancee. “He loves Piper, but he doesn’t really know where to go from there. So beginning of Season 2 and throughout we’re going to see or at least explore if the damage that was done is irreparable or if they can work through this.”
-Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) will be back for season 2–just not all of it. Natasha Lyonne confirmed that Prepon will be back, though reportedly only for four episodes before she makes her exit.
-Taryn Manning (Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett) has been upgraded to a series regular, reported Deadline, so she’ll definitely be back.
-Lori Petty (“Point Break”) will guest star in season 2, reported TVLine, though no details about her character have been released.
-Jackie Cruz (Flaca) told Latina that she couldn’t reveal anything about season 2, except that it will be high quality. “Every episode is going to be wow! All I can tell you is that every episode is like Christmas.”
-Creator Jenji Kohan told TVGuide that this season will focus less on Piper. ”It’s becoming much more of an ensemble,” Kohan said. “As much as I love Piper and Taylor and her journey, I think people are interested in everybody’s journey.” That includes more of Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba). And more of the history behind Poussé (Samira Wiley) and Black Cindy (Adrienne Moore).
-Also, some behind-the-scenes pictures were released near the end of filming recently. Check them out below.
