  • Guess she survived then. Not sure about this, I thought Pennsyltucky was an interesting character but she started to annoy me in the last few episodes. Taryn Manning was great though.

    • She was scary good in her role, especially the scenes in SHU. There are so many great performances on the show. Taryn was endearying, crazy, scary and sad. I’m glad she’ll be around to dish out her meth-angel craziness next season.

  • Taryn is a really good actress, but what else can they do with her annoying religious zealot character? I guess I should just trust Jenji Kohan’s genius mind.

  • The Taryn Manning news is kind of a spoiler alert, IMO. This kind of ruined it for me knowing that she will be back next season :-/

  • Damn that spoiler of Tayrn was not appreciated not everyone can binge watch a series! Glad the Exes is getting love as the series is funny and better than Hot in Cleveland!

    • Sorry, folks, had no idea. Headline/intro/blogroll photo tweaked to save others from spoilage.

      • Not really much of a spoiler, Tucky is scrappy, she could survive an apocalypse.

  • Heather Hemmens is great, she was the highlight of Hellcats!

  • Like others have said, Taryn’s promotion is kind of a spoiler. Her character (finale spoiler) ended the season with Piper beating her to a bloody pulp, so this news pretty much confirms she survives.
    Though I gotta say, it’s a bit of a relief because the thought that Piper would have compounded her sentence by killing a fellow inmate was giving me such anxiety. At least she’s not a murderer :D

    • Piper was trying to kill the girl so will piper be back on season 2

  • Jesus people, I have finished the season but this moron is really going to sit there and type out exactly what happened thus ruining it for everyone who hasn’t had a chance to watch it yet? Some people’s kids….

  • Why is everyone complaining about the fact that this is a “spoiler” when by reading this you were obviously LOOKING for info about season two? Don’t want spoilers?… well, then don’t look for them! Criminy.

    Anyway, I loved the first season and look forward to the second. I liked the Taryn’s character at first, but agree with other comments that she did become very annoying in the last couple episodes.

  • I understand that it was a casting news announcement- but this really is kind of a big spoiler alert! Her character is a part of a HUGE cliffhanger for the show’s finale, where her life hung in the balance. I think it would be great if you could somehow change the title of this article to reflect that.

    For instance, if it had said “Orange is the New Black Adds a New Series Regular- SPOILER ALERT”- then, if I clicked on it, I could only blame myself for whatever news I read. As it is, I clicked this interested to see if the charactersTaystee or Pousee or Big Blue, etc were joining the main cast and unintentionally ended up ruining a big plot point for next year.

    Please consider changing the headline.

    • Absolutely! I just started watching the series. It would help if the posters also tagged their posts with Spoiler Alert.

  • Come on people… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that they weren’t going to have her die from the fight. That would cross a pretty big line. Get a grip…

  • Ugh her character was super annoying. Can’t believe that Penssatucky will be back to torture us with her messiah complex. They better be planning on redeeming her character coz there are much better characters that I’d like to see more of like Taystee and Pousey and Janay.

  • That’s really great and amazing. I really liked it.

  • Yeah this is pretty much NOT much of a spoiler. The original author of the book only spent a year and a half in prison. I doubt they would deviate so quickly. I think if they told us someone was NOT coming back….THAT would be a spoiler.

  • Dang, I really hoped the character was dead.
    She can’t be more brain damaged then she already is.

  • I really hoped she would die aswell haha …I am obsessed with this show it is so interesting

  • Taryn is absolutely incredible in this show. Her performance in the psyche ward is probably the best of the entire series (out of an array of fantastic performances.)
