In September 2014, Lauren Morelli, one of the show's writers, announced that she and her husband of two years were divorcing because she had started a relationship with Samira Wiley
. Jenji Kohan
later joked about the situation while a panelist at the New Yorker Festival, saying "I turned [Morelli] gay. I made her gay. I felt there wasn't enough balance in the [writing] room, so I have a magic wand and I make people gay. But, you know, I can turn her back. I can make people Hispanic. I can make them black."

The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men
without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more
