‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 2 Will Come With a Whole Lot More Taystee

By: Robert Kessler / July 29, 2013

For all of us anxiously awaiting Orange is the New Black’s second season (2014 isn’t too far off right?) there’s some exciting news. Just like Taryn Manning before her, Danielle Brooks, who plays Taystee, has been promoted to series regular. When it comes to Taystee, more is certainly better.

Taystee saying This ain't the fucking Help, bitch.

In other OITNB news, Lorraine Toussaint has reportedly been hired for a “heavily recurring” role. Unfortunately, Law & Order’s Shambala Green won’t be playing an attorney, but a woman named Vee who ran her own drug business and recruited children to work as runners. It seems like they could be setting up some pretty serious drama between Vee and Pornstache, with Red trapped in the middle. Feel free to speculate wildly about OITNB’s second season with me in the comments.
