Orange is the New Black Season 2 Premiere and Cast News: Is Scientology Threatened By the Hit T.V. Show?
Each and every day we get closer to the highly anticipated June 6, 2014 return of the greatest prison dramedy of all time. Don't know what we're talking about? Well we're referring to Netflix's Orange Is the New Black season two, of course.
Netflix created OITNB from the ground up, as part of their push to compete with cable TV providers as well as Hulu and Amazon, and its been nothing but a rousing success. In fact, the show is the most watched Netflix program of all time (take that, Heisenberg). So, that being said, what's going to happen come June?
Enstarz reports that the cast and crew of OITNB met at the Paley Center for Media in New York City to discuss the trajectory of the show. Jason Biggs, of American Pie fame, plays the awkward Larry Bloom. Bloom just happens to be engaged to an inmate at an upstate New York prison. Bride-to-be Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) also happens to be bisexual.
"When we left Larry and Piper in Season 1, their relationship was precarious at best," Biggs said. "For Larry, Season 2 is pretty much spent trying to figure out if the damage that was done to the relationship was irreparable, or if there's something that they can mend there. They really love each other. I really believe that."
To make things even more interesting for Chapman and Bloom's future marriage (our fingers are crossed her at the Latin Post) is that her former lover practically shares the same cell with her! So why is Chapman, who's a goody-two shows by the way, doing hard time? Well, she was busted for carrying drug money roughly a decade earlier for said girlfriend Alex Vause (Laura Prepon).
Speaking of Prepon, the former That '70s Show star is rumored to be dating Scientologist Tom Cruise. Heavily into Scientology herself, there's been chatter that Prepon's on-screen lesbianism was at odds with her religion. Thus, she supposedly distanced herself from the program and has less screen time going forward.
Regardless whether or not that's true, OITNB is going to be great!
