‘Orange is the New Black’ Credits Get the ‘Arrested Development’ Treatment from Netflix
We’re just days away from the season 2 debut of Netflix’s ‘Orange is the New Black,’ and while the streaming service hasn’t offered any update on future ‘Arrested Development,’ we’ve got the next best thing. Check out the ‘Orange is the New Black’ opening credits remixed to match ‘Arrested Development’ beat for beat, with a special ‘Arrested’ cameo to mark the occasion!
As created by Netflix in advance of ‘Orange is the New Black”s upcoming season 2 premiere, the ‘Arrested Development’-style intro even goes so far as to feature Narrator and co-creator Ron Howard putting in the voiceover to explain Piper’s predicament, and the family helping to keep her life together.
In addition to Laura Prepon’s confirmed season 2 return and Taryn Manning’s elevation to series regular, ‘Orange Is the New Black’ season 2 will see both Uzo Aduba (“Crazy Eyes”) and Danielle Brooks’ Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson similarly upgraded. Lorraine Toussaint joined the Netflix drama’s second season in a heavily recurring role as Vee, a longtime street tough who ran her own drug business, recruiting children to serve as runners, while ’90s ‘Tank Girl’ icon Lori Petty will appear in an unknown role.
Looking ahead to season 3, we’ve also learned that Leyva, Nick Sandow (counselor Joe Caputo) and Adrienne C. Moore (Black Cindy) have been upgraded to series regular. Laura Prepon too will return full-time, despite her somewhat handicapped presence in the upcoming second season.
