Netflix heeft besloten om Orange is the New Black nog drie nieuwe seizoenen te geven. Showrunner Jenji Kohan zal ook voor de vijfde, zesde en zevende seizoenen aanwezig blijven. Kohan zei:
“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. 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!”
Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content zei:
“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt. 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.”
Het vierde seizoen is vanaf 17 juni te zien.
