Netflix Renews Orange Is the New Black
Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black is in no danger of getting the death penalty.
The prison-set comedy from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, which is set to launch its first 13-episode season on July 11, has already been renewed for a second season.
“I am thrilled that Netflix has extended my sentence,” Kohan said in a statement.
Orange stars Taylor Schilling as Piper Chapman, a Brooklynite whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and 15-month long detention in a federal penitentiary.
The cast also includes Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.
