"Orange is the New Black" season 2 release date news is still fairly nonexistent. Netflix has yet to announce a definitive premiere date for the upcoming season, though the show is currently in production. While an exact day has yet to be announced, the "Orange is the New Black" season 2 start date is expected to hit the streaming service in early 2014. Viewers itching for a Litchfield Correctional Facility fix have ample time before their favorite orange jumpsuit-donning women return. In the meantime, let's take a look at some "OITNB" spoilers.

"Orange is the New Black" season 2 spoilers were teased during the PaleyFest Made in NY event earlier this month. For starters, Laura Prepon originally read for the part of Piper, though Kohan knew she wasn't a fit. Instead, Prepon landed the role of fan favorite Alex Vause, Piper's former lesbian lover slash international drug smuggler. While viewers will only see Prepon in one episode of season two, the cryptic prison yard chicken may return next season. Akin to several other new shows today ("Under the Dome", "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Sleepy Hollow"), "Orange is the New Black" is based off of a book of the same name by Piper Kerman, which details Kerman's personal experiences in prison. However, the cast and creator revealed that the Netflix series will stray from the memoir, using it more as inspiration rather than a blueprint. Watch "Orange is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan and cast members discuss behind-the-scenes news at the Paley Center for Media event below.

"Orange is the New Black" season 2 cast members are becoming notorious for their tight-lipped nature on the upcoming season. However, a few actresses have teased little tidbits on what viewers can anticipate for season 2. Uzo Aduba ("Crazy Eyes") told PopSugar that the writing and acting is just as good (if not better) in the second season, and that she thinks audiences should be excited. Another show star, Natasha Lyonne, offered up some season 2 spoilers in an exclusive Conan video. Granted, the spoilers are fake, but who doesn't love some Lyonne? According to the "OITNB" actress, season 2 will feature more eyes in the opening credits and new warden Dustin Diamond. In all seriousness, actress Kate Mulgrew (Red) confirms season 2 will be full of surprises.

"I can tell you this, it's intriguing and entirely unexpected. Everything that you think will happen does not happen and everything that you want to happen, maybe happens, the unexpected reigns supreme."
