Not surprisingly, Netflix has renewed “Orange is the New Black” for a fourth season. Interestingly, the streaming service has renewed the series before the third season has premiered. Season three will premiere all of the episodes for streaming on June 12 while season four will arrive sometime in 2016.
Season 3 will feature some new faces and the return of some favorites. Mary Steenburgen joined the cast and was revealed to be playing the mother of Pablo Schreiber’s character (Mendez aka Pornstache). Laura Prepon will return as Alex. She wasn’t seen as much in season two, since the character was released from prison for a while, but she will be back full time in season three. Mike Birbiglia has joined the cast in an unknown role. Ruby Rose joined the cast as a new inmate who will play a potential love interest for both Piper and Alex.
OITNB has won three Emmys, two SAG awards, an NAACP Image award, a Peabody and a PGA award, along with incredible critical acclaim and fan love.
Netflix knows what it is doing and knows what shows fans want. Along with the return of OITNB, they also renewed “House of Cards” for a fourth season.
