If you’ve already finished binge-watching House of Cards Season 2 on Netflix, you now have something else to look forward to: At the end of that series’ season finale, Netflix revealed that Orange is the New Black Season 2 will premiere on June 6!
The first season of the hit Netflix series followed Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), a happily engaged New Yorker who was sent to a women’s federal prison for transporting a suitcase full of drug money across international borders for her now ex-lover Alex (Laura Prepon), who also ended up in Litchfield Prison. Over the course of the show’s first season, Piper met many colorful characters, from prison stylist Sophia Burset (Laverne Cox) to commanding kitchen czar Red (Kate Mulgrew).
Though little is known about Season 2, several castmembers have confirmed it will pick up right where Season 1 left off, and (SPOILER ALERT) deal head-on with Piper finding her inner prisoner and beating Doggett (Taryn Manning) within an inch of her life.
