Nerdist Podcast: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK (TWCH)

Later this month, the fifth season of Orange is the New Black is coming to Netflix, but you won’t have to wait long to see the women of Litchfield Penitentiary! Four of the main cast members from Orange is the New Black joined our founder, Chris Hardwick, for a new episode of AMC’s Talking with Chris Hardwick! In today’s special episode of the Nerdist podcast, we’re sharing the extended and uncensored conversation between Chris and his guests: Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Danielle Brooks, and Taryn Manning.

To kick off the episode, the cast members told Chris about the incredible response to the series, which is the first Netflix original to get a full seven season commitment. It’s safe to say that no one expected anything like this. Schilling even admitted that she thought it was going to a web series. Brooks also shared the story about how and why she was ready to quit the entertainment industry before landing a leading role on the series reignited her passion.

Additionally, the cast members spoke about how they came together as friends and an ensemble. Of course, Chris also asked the cast to define the series as a comedy or a drama. It’s a hard one to pin down!

Make sure to watch Talking with Chris Hardwick Sunday nights at 11pm when it returns to AMC later this summer. You can also find previous episodes on amc.com/talking! The extended audio will premiere as a podcast here every Friday after a new episode makes its AMC debut.
