A few weeks ago 'Orange is the New Black' fans were excited to learn that star Taryn Manning (Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett) has been upgraded to series regular for season 2, despite the season 1 ending that left her character's fate somewhat unclear. Still unclear however, is the fate of co-star Laura Prepon, so what does Manning have to say of Prepon's potential exit, or her own arc in season 2?
Orange Is the New Black
Fans of Netflix's critically-acclaimed original series 'Orange is the New Black' would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite aspect of the series, though the dry presence of former 'That 70's Show' star Laura Prepon's Alex would surely prove a favorite. That may make news of the latest 'Orange is the New Black' season 2 castings hard to bear, as Prepon will reportedly take a minimal role in season 2, before exiting entirely.
Though Netflix's critically-acclaimed original series 'Orange in the New Black' has scarcely been out a month, already the Jenji Kohan-produced series has begun shoring up its cast for the confirmed second season in 2014. In addition to the earlier announcement that series' antagonist Taryn Manning had been upped to series regular despite her character's ambiguous fate, 'Orange is the New Black' has upped two more of Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling)'s prison co-stars up to series regular.
Though the buzz from all Netflix original series dies down a bit once all episodes have been released, word of mouth and season 2 for 'Orange Is the New Black,' from 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan, remains strong. In addition to its early season 2 renewal, the women-in-prison drama has officially made its first major season 2 casting, bumping up an established character for a surprising promotion.
Well, this is a pleasant surprise! The first trailer for Netflix's upcoming original series 'Orange is the New Black' deftly won us over, and already the streaming service has shown a major vote of confidence with a second season order. The new series from 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan won't premiere until July 11, but what can we expect to see from the second season?
There's 'Arrested Development,' and there's just plain arrested. Next up on Netflix's roster of original releases is that of 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan's 'Orange is the New Black,' and its July 11 release date has finally allowed for a trailer release. Will the streaming service's first original dramedy achieve the reverence of 'House of Cards' or wind up more 'Hemlock Grove'-y?
Now that Netflix's latest original effort 'Hemlock Grove' has achieved equal, if not greater success than breakout series 'House of Cards,' and the red carpet has literally rolled out for 'Arrested Development' season 4, the pay-streaming service has officially set a July 11 premiere for its latest effort, 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan's 'Orange Is the New Black.' Netflix's latest series stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon and Jason Biggs, so get a first look at 'Orange Is the New Black' inside!
