“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.
