It's gonna be great. One thing basically every cast member is willing to say is that Season 2 is going to be even better than the show's breakout freshman season. Danielle Brooks (Taystee) says the "the writing was amazing before and it has gotten even better," and Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) thinks "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."
New dynamics. Dascha Polanco (Dayanara Diaz) dished to us that the characters "venture out more," adding, "I think we're going to get more interactions amongst more of the women in prison." There will also be some new characters to look forward to, including prison therapist Chris Maser, who will be played by The Wire star Deirdre Lovejoy.
Bye, bye, Alex. Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) will only be back for four episodes of the new season, though she may return as a series regular in the future. That said, within those four episodes it sounds like we will see Alex's relationship with Piper develop. Larry's not gonna like that. Speaking of which...
Larry goes bad? According to Jason Briggs, who spoke to E!, although Larry started the series wanting to help and support Piper through this difficult time, "he realizes that he's kind of a victim in all of it and he needs to take care of himself as well, but to what extreme, and how far should he take that exactly? Ultimately, he ends up taking advantage of Piper and the situation she's in, and becomes a little greedy and a little questionable."
Is Tiffany alive? In case you were worried that Piper's brutal beating of Pennsatucky would tip over into murder, never you fear — not only is Tiffany Doggett back in all her born again, meth head glory, but Taryn Manning has been promoted to series regular on the show. Danielle Brooks (Taystee) and Uzo Aduba (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren) have also been promoted to series regular status.
More Poussey. We're pretty sure the entire world is happy to hear that Poussey will finally get her own backstory episode.
