Orange is the New Black isn’t returning with Season 2 until June 6, but thanks to People, we now have a bunch of brand new sneak peek images of all of our favorite fictional inmates! Where last season focused mainly on Piper and how she was adjusting to prison life, Taylor Schilling told People that this season will be a little different, “The beauty of this show is how we straddle the line between comedy and drama. It’s a true ensemble. In season two, we’ll see how Piper’s story continues, but the show also gets wider and deeper to tell the stories of even more of the women.” Exciting! I can’t wait to see more of Suzanne, Pennsatucky, Sophia, Morello, Poussey, Taystee, Nicky and the rest of the inmates.
It looks like Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off, with the aftermath of Piper’s big fight.
Here we get to see Alex and Piper in the good days, before Piper ever even met Larry. Piper, don’t you see how much happier you are without him?!?
Or maybe I’m just projecting.
Red seems to be having all sorts of trouble, both with new characters and old. Here she is having a showdown with new cast member Lorraine Toussaint’s character Vee…
…And here she is making the face I make whenever Pornstache is on the screen.
This is a picture from Litchfeild’s “Mock Job Fair,” where Morello is apparently applying for a job as a 1940’s sailor, Leanne is going to be a shoulder pad model and Sophia is just being plain gorgeous.
These images are a little taste of what’s to come, and just make me wish for summer even more. While it’s definitely not as good as a new episode, hopefully these sneak peeks can tide us over until June.
Is it weird that I read “we straddle the line” and was like OMG an Autostraddle shout out!!
I CAN’T wait til June…I must know more about the shoulder pads :)
I may or may not have worn something similar to what Nicky is wearing on that mock job fair to interviews…
will this be the only show in the history of television where the characters don’t show up for season two with brand new haircuts, i hope so
Don’t mind me I’m just going to be over here on the floor waiting for June. I have no other purpose in life.
when i go for job interviews i always think i look like taystee and end up looking like leanne. too real.
I love how Taystee is the only one who actually looks employable. Those outfits….What year is Leanne applying for a job in? Same question for Morello.
Gawd I can’t wait!
Pre Larry Piper does seem happier with Alex, bit really Alex is wasted on Piper. Loving the glimpses of two of my favourites, Nicky and Sophia. Hope they get plenty of air time in the new series.
i want whatever job sophia is applying for.
But, Nickels…she’s looking fierce!
I need this new season like I need air, maybe more so.
Do I FINALLY get to find out Poussey’s background?!
I’m going to see the OITNB panel at PaleyFest this Friday. That means I’ll literally be like 5 rows away from Laverne Cox! For everyone not attending, they’re going to live stream the video on the PaleyFest website.
More Natasha Lyonne popping collars!!!
Nikki is how I look like at job fairs. But I’m so excited for the new season! AAAAAND FOR RECAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!
