'Orange Is the New Black' Renewed for 3 More Seasons!

Orange Is the New Black has been renewed for not just one more season, not two, but three additional seasons!

The Netflix series has been renewed through season seven, the streaming service announced months before the premiere of season four.

Jenji [Kohan] and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt. Audiences around the world have come to love the ladies and men of Orange is the New Black, and we are eager to see where three more seasons will take them,” Netflix’s vp, original content, Cindy Holland, said in a statement (via THR).

“Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things,” Jenji said in a statement. “In some cultures, ‘May you lead an interesting life,’ is a curse, but I don’t live in those cultures. Here’s to keeping it interesting. Thanks Netflix! Both thanks and you’re welcome Lionsgate! And kudos and gratitude to the stellar cast and crew and writers and producers and editors and musicians and mixers and shleppers… with whom I have the pride and honor of crafting this show. Three more years! Three more years!”
