About the life and times of Taystee from Orange is The Black, we’re not the first to say it, but we would so watch an entire spin-off series. On the episode where she was released from prison, only to come right back, we kind of got our wish – but now, of Taystee we’re getting another taste. While Danielle Brooks has been promoted to a series regular for season 2, we already know, but the new exciting info is that: On Girl’s! She’s guest starring.

In her recent interview with Ebony, that’s only one of many nuggets of gold, which worth a read. For instance, she talks about Poussey, Taystee’s excellent grammar skills and confronting stereotypes. She casually drops the fact at the very end that she “will be the forst Black woman to be on Girls, so that’s exciting for me.” Yes, it is very exciting! Not just because brooks is an excellent actress whose personality feels like a perfect fit for the show’s cast but because Dunham’s show has been thoroughly criticized for its lack of diversity.
