Taylor Schilling stars in the comedy/drama produced by Lionsgate Television and based on Piper Kerman’s memoir. Commenting on the renewal, creator/executive producer Jenji Kohan said, “I am thrilled that Netflix has extended my sentence.”
“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal series and we’re eager to get a second season to our viewers,” added Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.”
Orange is the New Black follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and 15-month long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates.
