‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season 2 Has Begun Filming

By: Chris Crum - July 30, 2013

Orange is the New Black continues to capture a great deal of buzz on the Internet nearly three weeks after the launch of the entire first season. Netflix announced that it would produce a second season even before the first one debuted, and things are moving right along.

As reported earlier, Lorraine Toussaint has been added to the cast, and Danielle Brooks and Taryn Manning from Season 1 have been promoted to regulars.

It has also been announced that production has begun. From the Orange is the New Black Facebook page (also announced on Twitter this morning):

Orange is the New Black

Whip your hair(net) back & forth, production has started on #OITNB season 2! Stay tuned for news and updates!

Separately, Matt McGorry, who plays John Bennett on the show, told Entertainment Weekly that the show was to begin filming on Monday.

Netflix has not announced a release date for the second season, but has said that it will debut in 2014. Other Netflix shows like House of Cards, Hemlock Grove and Lilyhammer have second seasons on the way. Lilyhammer’s will debut sometime this year. Arrested Development, which has earned three Emmhy nominations is likely to get picked up for another season as well. So far, Netflix is keeping the original content train rolling right along.

    Season 2 2014 wth did piper kill that chic

    • Can’t wait

      Probably not since Taryn Manning was promoted to a regular and is no longer considered a guest appearance.

        I think it was a staged fight. I think Piper was helping her get her new teeth by beating the shit out of her face breaking her teeth for her Christmas present.
