Over the weekend, Kate Mulgrew, Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox, cast members of the new Netflix series Orange is the New Black, along with Piper Kerman, who wrote the memoir on which it is based, appeared on Melissa Harris-Perry’s show on MSNBC to discuss the show, the stereotypes it deals with, the real-life prison system, etc.

The Network has shared a few segments from the discussion on its site:

Orange is the New Black has already been renewed for a second season. Filming began a week ago, and several pictures from the set have been released. The show has also picked up a new cast member, and promoted a couple of others to regulars.

Many of the cast member beyond those who appeared on MSNBC have been doing interviews, and I would imagine we’ll be seeing quite a few more, as the show has generated a great deal of buzz. It appears to be Netflix’s most popular original series so far.

Naturally, now that a lot of people have had time to breeze through the first season, a lot of speculation and questions are coming out surrounding plot points of the forthcoming season (due in 2014). Dascha Polanco, who plays Dayanara Diaz on the show recently discussed a key part of her character’s storyline with Vulture last week, for example. It will be interesting to see if we can make it to the second season without too many spoilers coming out.
