"Orange is the New Black" on Netflix is gearing up for Season 2 after the show became the latest hit series for Netflix after a surprisingly huge reaction to its first season this summer.  Netflix is on a good run after coming out with the hugely successful "House of Cards" Season 1 is gaining high marks for their new original series they keep releasing.

"Orange is the New Black" Season 1 raised eyebrows for its controversial yet honest portrayal of prison life for women that is not been discussed much in popular culture especially through a series. 

Star Taylor Schilling shared this about joining the cast, "I read the pilots every year and a lot of it is another Law & Order, another CSI, another doctor show - they're all the same. This pilot came across my desk and it was unbelievable. It was so different from anything I'd read in so long. I needed to be part of this show," she said.

Season 2 of "Orange Is The New Black" is in the production stages right now and will be released sometime in 2014. 

The show is based around Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman that gets sent to prison 10 years after she got caught up in transporting drug money across international lines. She now has a fiance' Larry (Jason Biggs) and they are working through her being in prison together.
