Orange is the New Black Adds Three More Seasons to its Contract
After House of Cards has been renewed for a fifth season last week, it seems Netflix wants to protect its assets, and look after the properties that helped build it. Orange is the New Black isn't going anywhere, now renewed for three more seasons.
"Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things," creator Jenji Kohan said in a press release today. "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 honour of crafting this show. Three more years! Three more years!"
That kind of enthusiasm is great to see. Meanwhile, season four of the show will hit Netflix later this year.
