Orange Is the New Black Renewed for Seasons 5, 6 and 7

It looks like the ladies at Litchfield Penitentiary are in for an extended sentence.

Netflix announced on Friday morning that it has renewed its Emmy-winning prison drama Orange Is the New Black for three additional seasons, extending its run through at least Season 7.

“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “Audiences around the world have come to love the ladies and men of Orange is the New Black, and we are eager to see where three more seasons will take them.” 

The hour-long series, which boasts an ensemble including Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Kate Mulgrew and Laura Prepon, returns for Season 4 on Friday, June 17.

    Netflix just lost his mind…

  2. ABG says:

    Wow. Love the show but this is crazy.

  3. Steven says:

    Weeds 2.0

    • The Truth says:

      Yeah last season already started to lose me. May not be able to make it through the next one.

    • David4 says:

      Exactly. Last season I never even finished because it wasn’t that good.

      • dan says:

        Season 3 got better with the last four or five episodes. I agree some of the earlier episodes weren’t as strong as Seasons 1 and 2, but it ended strong. I re-watched the last episode of Season 2 last night and it is the best episode of the series thus far. Hopefully Season 4 will be as consistently good as the first two seasons.

  4. Pat says:

    Wow, not even AMC with The Walking Dead, which unless the world ends is gonna get 3 more seasons easy, goes that nuts at once.

  5. Spence says:

    If Big Bang Theory could get renewed for 3 advanced seasons, it’s only logical that a quality dramedy would do the same. Great news!

  6. retsim says:

    Not good enough to warrant 3 seasons just because it won an award .You can only stretch a drama so far .Will be giving it a miss from now on.

    Yeah…this has cash cow over quality storytelling written all over it. Jenji Cohen suffers from severe Ryan Murphyitis – she can’t see a story arc through without utterly destroying every ounce of likeability in her characters in the process. I’ve already started seeing signs of that in season 3 of OITNB and I predict it will go down a similar Weeds gutter.

  8. This is the best news ever! Season 1 to 3 were amazing… Can’t wait for season 4 to start.

  9. H says:

    Then Netflix will release all 39 episodes all at once!

  10. Annie says:

    OMG THIS IS THE BEST. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    No, I’m not surprised! It’s a GREAT show and they were smart to lock in the talented actors so it can continue! What? Didn’t watch all of last season? You CAN’T be serious. We binged watched in one weekend! #pooryou

  12. LT says:

    Couldn’t make it past episode 6 of the first season, but I’m happy for all you fans.

  13. A fan of TV says:

    TVLine trivia gods and monsters, was the last time a show got a three-season renewal when ABC announced s4 + 5 and 6 to end-game for LOST?

    I’m excited for this news, but the scoop I really want is whether we can expect to get Miss Claudette, Nickles, and Ruby out of SuperMax in s4. The show needs them all.

    • Phil says:

      I think, for scripted television, that would be “The Big Bang Theory’s” renewal for season 8-10.
      Syndicated shows like Wheel of Fortune and Wendy Williams have longer cycles (sometimes), but I think Big Bang was the last.

  14. Zoe says:

    I worry when shows get renewed for multiple seasons, because the shows don’t have to try as hard, and dip in quality.

  15. Amanda says:

    I actually don’t watch this show but I’m confused anyway. How long is her sentence supposed to be? A day in the real world must be an hour in the slammer. ;)

  16. Lauren Zorn says:

    Just discovered the show last night & binge watched til 4 in the morning. It’s great !!!
