We were pretty impressed with Orange is the New Black’s debut season this summer (who doesn’t want to see what happens when a straight-laced white girl heads to prison?) but according to star Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) Season 2 is even richer.

The cast is currently filming the sophomore season in New York, and Taylor has nothing but good things to say about what she’s seen so far. She tells Huffington Post, “All of the characters and all of the dynamics are just going deeper. It's just getting fuller and richer and to me, more compelling.”

We already know that Laura Prepon — who plays Piper’s one time lesbian lover Alex Vause — will likely only have a limited role in the upcoming season, but everyone else is expected to return on a full-time basis. Producers are even adding to the cast, giving red lipstick-wearing inmate Lorna a sister come Season 2.

Part of what makes Piper so appealing to her portrayer, and to viewers, is that she’s so inherently out of place in her surroundings. As Taylor explains, “Piper's story allows us to see into a world that we don't get to see and that certainly deals with a lot of racism and classicism. I think Piper's eyes are open to things she wasn't necessarily aware of and hopefully that is a journey the audience is taking.”
