“I am a lone wolf, and a vicious one. Don’t make me rip your throat out.”

– Piper, OITNB

And so the tone is set for season two of the most debaucherous, hilarious, heart-wrenching show not on TV. Orange is the New Black is back, bitches!

I watched the entire first season the first day it came out. I mean, I only left the sofa long enough to buzz up the delivery guy and that one pee break. Otherwise, I was glued to the screen, watching the shenanigans of Piper and Red and Taystee and Poussey and Big Boo and Miss Claudette and of course Crazy Eyes. As a fan of her previous material (Weeds), I couldn’t wait to see what creator Jenji Kohan had in her hat. And boy was it a doozy.

Kohan quietly created the most diverse group of women ever(?) assembled on one set and told their stories. Characters that would never have made it on to network television. Seriously, can you imagine Taystee on NCIS? Kohan dug deep into these women’s backgrounds, creating complex, multi-layered women who weren’t all white. It was so refreshing.

So, now, as the new season approaches, it is great to see our favorites back on the screen, doing what they do best: entertain us with riveting storytelling and great acting. I cannot wait.

Orange is the New Black premieres the entire season 2 on NetflixJune 6th.
