Danielle Brooks' Instagram page


Good news. We'll learn the date of the season 2 premiere of Orange Is the New Black really, really soon, according to several vague media reports.

While you wait, I suggest you satisfy your cravings by stalking Danielle Brooks on Instagram. It should be said here that all of the OITNB cast members are ridiculously endearing on Instagram, but Brooks, who plays Taystee, is kinda special. She might also be the happiest person on the Internet.

Also, she's bad.

Her jumpsuit game is quite stellar.

Look at her joyously spending time with your other favorite OITNB cast member, Samira Wiley, also known as Poussey.

This one is really important: She can relate to all women who know the unfortunate torture of getting into a pair of Spanx. She gets us, y'all.

Lastly, she woke up like this.

Thank you for your light, Danielle. Season 2, please come quickly.
