Netflix has ambitiously renewed Orange is the New Black for not 1, not 2 but 3 more seasons.
The news comes ahead of the fourth season in June.
Series creator and showrunner Jenji Kohan will continue at the helm for seasons 5, 6, and 7.
“Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things. In some cultures, ‘May you lead an interesting life,’ is a curse, but I don’t live in those cultures,” said Kohan in a statement.
“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!”
