Monday, at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles, Chelsea Handler shared moments with the cast and creator of the hit series "Orange is the New Black" and revealed some interesting updates for its upcoming third season.
Present at the conference was lead actress Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman), and other co-stars including Uzo Aduba (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes"), Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols) Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset), and others.
Also featured in the event is series writer and creator Jenji Kohan telling about the creative process that often goes on the writer's room.
"We have to have the freedom to be as horrible as we want, and vulnerable," she said. "What's lovely about our group is that you can only fight about story. We're all a bunch of open wounds and what's really great is that we all take it out on ourselves in general, so the fights are about the work."
"It's not people attacking each other, it's about the work and what they believe should happen," Kohan added.
Schilling, on the other hand was envied by her castmates as she spoke about Kohan's initiative to cast her off of a tape audition while on vacation in Ireland with family.
Lyonne discussed her role as a "junky philosopher" in the show, which Handler said was similar to the real life Natasha.
Emmy-nominated Uzo Aduba expressed her excitement with the show's rise in popularity.
"It just feels good, if I'm being really honest, because you just remember that feeling when we first started," she told HitFlix. "We certainly weren't making it with any level of expectation, we were just all very excited to be working."
In a recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Kohan revealed some news about the ongoing production where it is purported that the third season will be dealing "about faith."
"Orange is the New Black" season 3 is rumored to stream in June or July of 2015 on Netflix.
