Netflix's hit series Orange Is the New Black is getting a fifth, sixth, and seventh season. The streaming company announced this morning that the show got a massive three-year renewal this morning, keeping it on air through at least 2019. Showrunner Jenji Kohan is staying onboard as part of the deal.
"Three more years!"
"Three more years!" said Kohan in an official statement. "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. Here’s to keeping it interesting. Thanks Netflix! Both thanks and you’re welcome Lionsgate!"
Orange Is the New Black, which debuted in 2013, is one of Netflix's highest regarded series to date. Along with critical acclaim, the show has won numerous awards, including two supporting actress Emmys for actress Uzo Aduba. OITNB's fourth season premieres on June 17th.
