‘Orange Is The New Black’ Renewed For Season 3

Orange Is The New Black will return for a third season, netflix-logoits writers said via Twitter today. The show’s co-star Laura Prepon also confirmed the news via her Instagram feed (see below). The unofficially official word comes a month before Season 2 premieres on Netflix on June 6 with all 13 episodes available at launch. The Jenji Kohan-created prison dramedy stars Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Prepon and Kate Mulgrew. It is competing in the comedy Emmy category this season after being submitted as a drama (and largely shut out) at the Golden Globes. It has had better luck elsewhere though, earning a Peabody Award and over the weekend winning Outstanding Comedy at the GLAAD Media Awards.
