Prep your Netflix binge sweats: The jury finds that the ladies of Litchfield are to be sentenced to at least three more years behind bars. Or rather, with the fourth season ready to start its on-screen sentence on June 17th, it has just been announced that Orange Is the New Black has been renewed for three more seasons.
The show’s creator Jenji Kohan will remain the warden of the show for the newly announced seasons, and is totally prepared to stay at the helm of the locked-up ladies. “Three more years!” said Kohan in a press statement. “Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things… Here’s to keeping it interesting. … Three more years! Three more years!”
Hardly the normal reaction to a prolonged sentence, but considering the show’s domination this awards season (seriously, how adorable is it that Uzo Aduba brought her prom date to the SAG Awards?!), there’s no denying that Piper and her prison crew are riding high on their current incarcerated popularity.
VP of original content at Netflix Cindy Holland got it right on the mark when she added, “Jenji 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.”
Get your jumpsuits out, ladies, because orange is still the new black.
