Orange is the New Black Season 2 has been confirmed to have a release date on June 6, 2014, when all episodes will have a premiere date on Netflix. As the eagerly awaited season draws closer, various rumors and spoilers are emerging about what's in store for Piper Chapman and her prison buddies.
Series creator has already confirmed that the new season will be different to what fans experienced in Season 1; the storyline will no longer just focus on Taylor Schilling's Piper character as the main player. Instead the script will draw out various members of the prison community and tell their stories one by one.
The love triangle between Piper, Alex – player by Laura Prepon, and fiancé Larry – played by Jason Biggs, will still play a major part, however, and especially recent spoilers have explained that both Alex and Larry will begin to distance themselves from Piper, having both been burned by her as she flip flops with her feelings towards them.
Some of the other characters who will be drawn to the forefront of the storylines being featured will include some hit favorites from Season 1, including Uzo Aduba, who plays "Crazy Eyes," Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee and Taryn Manning, who plays Pennsatucky.
New cast members will also include Lori Petty, who is best known for her part as Tank Girl. However, details about what kind of character she will play has not yet been leaked.
Another new cast member will include Lorraine Toussaint from "Any Day Now," and she is set to guest star as a despicable woman who owned a drug ring in which she employed children.
It has also been rumored that fans will witness Larry go off the deep end a little in the new Season. In Season 1, viewers were able to sympathize with Larry as Piper messed him around and cheated on him. However, in Season 2 Larry apparently "does something a little questionable" and takes advantage of Piper. The distance between the two continues to grow in Season 2, and Larry will show that he can be as ruthless as Piper in being selfish and putting himself first.
Orange is the New Black season 2 has a Netflix premiere date of June 6.
