‘Orange Is the New Black’ Is Back With Criminal Season 2 Trailer
The much-anticipated second season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black will start streaming all 13 episodes on June 6, and Netflix has released a trailer giving a sneak peek into what the new season of the women’s prison drama holds. It looks like fans are up for more craziness, fights, female camaraderie, and a continuation of some of the best portrayals of sexuality and gender identity on television.
The show’s creator, Jenji Kohan, who was also responsible for the edgy Showtime drama Weeds, spoke about the show’s next season at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society lunch on Wednesday. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Kohan brought down the house at the lunch with her frank discussion of sexuality on television.
“I love graphic sex. The more sex the better,” she said, per The Hollywood Reporter. “Very often it’s convincing the actors to get naked. … You hope everyone will just be cool about it, and then they’re not. There’s a lot of convincing and making people feel comfortable.” Kohan also complained about the picky contracts that lead actors often have regarding nudity. “Very often, there’s a very specific rider,” she said, “only side boob or only this cheek. … The extras, God bless them, are the ones that have it all out there — and it’s only an extra $10 a day for full nudity.”
Kohan also promised that the show will continue pushing the envelope when it comes to sex and nudity. “We have some male frontal nudity this season,” she said, “but I don’t think it’s going to be erect.”
