‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season 2: Premiere Date and Preview of Hit Netflix Show

January 13, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Orange is the New Black is returning to Netflix with season 2, with a release date of sometime later this year, although a trailer hasn’t been released yet.

Spoilers about what will happen in the new season have been coming out, so let’s take a look at some of them.

-There will be “some pretty amazing flashbacks,” Jen Rogien, costumer designer for the show, told Entertainment Weekly. “We travel into different time periods to see the characters’ backstories.”

-Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) will be on four episodes of the new season before exiting the show, reported BuzzFeed. Jason Biggs (Larry) will be back as well, reported EW.

-Season two “is going to be just as good if not better than the first,” Jason Biggs told EW. “[Larry] wants to support Piper. In the beginning, ostensibly, he’s going to do everything he can to support Piper, but ultimately he realizes that he’s kind of a victim in all of it and he needs to take care of himself as well, 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.”

-Filming is expected to wrap up this month, according to executive producer Sara Hess. A release date could be announced soon. And a trailer will surely emerge soon.
