From Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, Orange is the New Black tells the heartbreaking and hilarious stories of the women at Litchfield Prison. In Season 1, Piper Chapman’s (Taylor Schilling) wild past came back to haunt her, resulting in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary where she finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates. In Orange Is the New Black Season 2, shocking revelations and new arrivals shake up the lives and relationships of the prisoners, in ways they never could have imagined.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, co-stars Kate Mulgrew (“Galina ‘Red’ Reznikov”) and Lorraine Toussaint (“Yvonne ‘Vee’ Parker”) talked about how they realized the level of popularity of this show, getting to explore the past and present of the relationship between their characters, that it’s great to work wearing a uniform, sneaking bits of glamour in, the expectation level that they have to live up to know, and how they each felt about the way their Season 2 storylines wrapped up. Check out what they had to say about Orange is the New Black season 2 after the jump, and be aware that there are major spoilers.
