Based on the speed and trajectory of her comeback, we're sometimes tempted to wonder if Natasha Lyonne mighty have found some sort of magical ring that grants wishes in a cave somewhere. And if so, we wants it.

Netflix isn’t quite batting 1,000 with its original shows, but it’s doing far better than I bet they dared to hope, and Orange is the New Black is a big part of the reason. Following the announcement of the date the second season will be available, now you can also mark your calendar for the release of the first season on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital. May 13th is the date (with digital outlets getting a week head start on the 6th), which gives you a couple of weeks to binge the season before… well, before you have to sign up for Netflix, I guess. Or, you could do that now, and have more time to watch.
Well, look, not everyone is going to sign up for Netflix, and those people want to watch the show everyone is talking about too. More importantly, the release comes with a lot of bonuses. »

Orange Is The New Black is one of the break-out television hits of last year. Airing exclusively on Netflix across the planet, the show, created by Jenji Kohan, the creative force behind Weeds, is a comedy set within the compounds of a woman’s prison, and it returns to television sets, computer screens, iPads, mobiles etc. for a second season this coming June.
From the creator of “Weeds” comes a heartbreaking and hilarious new series set in a women’s prison. Piper Chapman’s wild past comes back to haunt her, resulting in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper trades her comfortable New York life for an orange prison jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.
The second season has just got itself a teaser trailer, which we’ve quite helpfully posted in our super-duper player below. »

While you may be busy binging the second season of Netflix’s wonderfully addictive drama series House of Cards this weekend (helluva first episode, no?), the streaming service has also dropped the first trailer and release date for its other wildly popular original series Orange Is the New Black. The first season was a very pleasant surprise last year, as Jenji Kohan’s (Weeds) dramatic comedy series nearly eclipsed Netflix’s more high profile debuts of House of Cards and Arrested Development. For those unfamiliar, the show is based on the memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman and revolves around an engaged Brooklynite who ends up serving a year-long detention in a federal prison. This season two trailer is very much a teaser, but those itching to see the first footage from the new episodes should be sufficiently pleased. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. All 13 episodes »
