Orange Is The New Black Trailer
“I am prepared to behave like a model inmate, and I feel I no longer pose a threat,” says Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) in voiceover at the start of trailer. Following the events in last season’s finale in which Piper gave Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) a bloody beat down, it appears as though she’s still locked up in solitary confinement. “Sadly, it’s starting to feel like home,” she says when the warden check in on her.
Though Piper is the protagonist of Orange is the New Black, based off the memoir writer Piper Kerman, the show’s sophomore season looks like it's going for a broader scope, giving more time to the storylines of the supporting characters. Along with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba), Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Red (Kate Mulgrew), Morello (Yael Stone), there will be some new faces, including a rival for Red named V.
Diaz (Dascha Polanco) and John Bennett (Matt McGorry) appear to still be carrying on their illicit, jail cop-inmate affair. Crazy Eyes strikes up a friendship with V. Gloria (Selenis Leyva) is still in the kitchen after taking over from Red. Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) gets her hands on some weed. And, both of Piper’s love interests, her fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs) and ex-girlfriend Alex (Laura Prepon), briefly flash up on the trailer.
“I am a lone wolf and a vicious one,” says a hardened Piper towards the end of the two-minute trailer. “Don’t make me rip your throat out.”
Orange is the New Black’s second season will be released in full on Netflix Friday, June 6.
