Netflix gives ‘Orange’ 3rd season

Netflix has extended the sentence of “Orange Is the New Black” to a third season.

Ahead of its second season rollout, which gets unleashed to the public June 6 on the streaming site, came word — or a photo, rather — of the renewal. Laura Prepon, who plays inmate Alex Vause, a thorny ex of Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman, in the prison dramedy, let the cat out of the bag on her Instagram account. Prepon’s role was reduced for Season 2, though if her hashtags are any indication, she’ll be returning for the third cycle.

Netflix has not officially announced a renewal, but a source close to production confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that work on a third season has begun.

Netflix submitted the one-hour dramedy for Emmy consideration as a comedy.
