Orange is the New Black season 2 on Netflix now

Netflix has stuck to its 6 June release date, and fans of the prison-based drama can stream the show's second season from today.


"Orange is the New Black" season two is on Netflix from today, giving fans of the prison-based drama the chance to spend all day streaming fresh episodes.

Keeping to its 6 June release date, 13 new episodes are now live on Netflix, starting with episode one of the second season, "Thirsty Bird".

The US drama, which stars Taylor Shilling and has proved a hit with critics, is only available to watch on Netflix, which streams TV shows and movies to your TV, tablet, phone or laptop via an Internet connection.

Netflix is using its streaming service to challenge traditional broadcasters. "Orange is the New Black" is just one of Netflix's exclusive titles, alongside political thriller "House of Cards", which stars Kevin Spacey. The service's exclusive programming certainly appears to be popular, though back in April, the creator of "House of Cards" revealed he has no idea how many viewers watch his show, and that streaming figures are a closely-guarded secret.

Netflix is also said to be cooking up its first original British drama, "The Crown", which is expected to be inspired by the life of Queen Elizabeth II.
