I LOVE Orange is the New Black (@OITNB) and I wrote a post on 10 reasons why when I binge-watched it last year. Jenji Kohan’s adaptation of the book of the same name has captured folks’ attention since last year. I’ve been super ready to continue watching the journey of Piper Chapman, Taystee, Poussey, Crazy Eyes, Sophia, Big Red and the rest of the ladies. Oh and the guys they have to deal with (like Pornstache. He is the worst).
Tomorrow (June 6), season 2 will be released on Netflix for us to consume. Where season 1 left off was Piper beating the dog mess outta Pennsatucky, who had finally succeeded at pushing her over the edge. I thought she might have killed her at first (but she didn’t since Penn is on this new season). BuzzFeed has a good recap of the season 1 finale, to refresh your memory.
Anywho, watch the trailer below of the season 2 happenings.
YESSSSS!!! Shommon! Basically, my weekend is shot to pieces because I might just have to watch it all before Monday.
Oh and I met Danielle Brooks and Samira Wiley (Taystee and Poussey) at the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in February. They’re both the absolute sweetest and it made me love their characters even more than I already did.
Anywho I CAN’T WAIT FOR TOMORROW! Actually, it’ll be available at 12:01am PT on Friday so for those of us who are night owls, we can start watching season 2 (and all 13 episodes of it) then.
Do yall want me to recap OITNB? If so, I will have to watch the episodes one by one and write after each one instead of binge-watching. That’ll be hard. But let me know!
