'Orange Is The New Black' Season 2 Ready For Netflix Uncaging

Are you ready for the brand new season of Orange is the New Black? In a matter of hours we'll have 13 glorious new episodes of Netflix's hit original prison comedy-drama. Whether you eke out the joy to last into the summer or whether you binge all 13 over one weekend is up to you but we're here to whet your appetite with some exciting new clips from the new season.

For the uninitiated, Orange is the New Black is the Netflix original based on Piper Kerman's memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison. In the series, Taylor Schilling plays Piper, who is sent to prison for 15 months for transporting a suitcase full of drugs for her former girlfriend, Alex Vause (Laura Prepon).

The series sees Piper navigating the thorny prison hierarchy and its related stresses before reuniting with her former girlfriend in prison, leading the two to re-examine their relationship. Whilst taking a light-hearted look at women's prison and its characterful inmates, the series has also been praised to getting its viewers emotionally involved with some challenging scenarios.

The second season picks up after Piper has beaten fellow inmate Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett (Taryn Manning) to a pulp. Despite not featuring in the trailer, Pennsatucky will reportedly be revealed to be alive in season two. Litchfield will also be getting a new prisoner, Vee, played by Lorraine Toussaint, who will apparently be clashing with the matriarchal Red and will turn the prison into a "summer camp from hell."

Whilst the first episode will be pretty firmly centred on Piper, the rest of the series will encompass the wider ensemble as we learn more about the inmates and their colourful back-stories.

 Show creator Jenji Kohan gave EW's Popwatch a little insight into the new season: "We had a theme for season 2. A little darker, a little more fractured. We wanted to explore the groups one at a time," she said, adding "It was getting a little summer-campy, and we wanted to address the realities that this is prison."

The second season of Orange Is The New Black will premiere on Netflix on the 6th June.
