Netflix releases season two of 'Orange is the New Black'

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Jun 6, 2014

If you notice considerably less people out and about this weekend, it is probably because they are at home binge watching Netflix.

That is because digital entity Netflix released the second season of "Orange is the New Black" at midnight on Friday.

The series, which is set in a women's prison, broke a lot of conventions and records with its first season. Even though it takes place in a prison and deals with some very serious issues, it is a "dramedy" at heart.

The series, which stars Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon, is only available on Netflix. "Orange is the New Black" is just one of Netflix's exclusive titles.
