  1. I can’t wait for the new season! I think it says a bunch about Netflix and the runners of this show that they’re getting renewed for another season prior to season 2 even coming out! Can’t wait!

    The trailer is cool, but the jury is still out. Orange is the New Black indexes at a nearly even 52% positive on Twitter these days. Piper and the girls will need to do hard time to get the crowd solidly on their side. black&startDate=20131220&endDate=20140418
