‘Orange is the New Black’ Creator Jenji Kohan Says Netflix ‘Very Cryptic’ About Ratings


Online streaming giant Netflix is notorious for not releasing its viewership numbers; however, you would not originally think that things like this extend to a show’s creator. Unfortunately, according to an interview with the New York Times, Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan says the same policies apply to her as well.

“They say things like, ‘We’re very pleased,’ ” she said. “They’re very cryptic.”

As one could imagine, being kept in the dark can be nerve wracking, even for a television veteran like Kohan; however, she tells the New York Times that it doesn’t bother her as much as it once did.

“I’m finding the dark very restful and easy on the eyes,” she said.

Netflix lauds Orange is the New Black as their most-watched original series.

The shows surrounds the life of a newly minted prison inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary named Piper Chapman, played in the series by Taylor Schilling. Piper is convicted of a decade old crime she committed while she was still young and naïve and serving as a drug mule for her lesbian lover Alex, who just happens to be locked up in the same institution. Alex is played by That 70’s Show actress Laura Prepon.

While there is no definitive release date for Season 2 of the series, the show has been renewed by Netflix for a second season, and fans can expect to see new episodes in late mid to late 2014.
