NetFlix orders up more 'Orange is the New Black'
"Orange is the New Black" has been denied parole and is being given extra time.
The Netflix Original Series, set in a women’s prison, doesn't premiere until next month, but has already been okayed for a second season.
"Orange" centers on engaged socialite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), who finds herself in a federal penitentiary for fifteen months as a result of her friendship with her drug-dealing pal Alex (Laura Prepon).
The hour-long series from creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan ("Weeds") is produced by Lionsgate Television, and also stars Jason Biggs and Taryn Manning.
“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal series and we’re eager to get a second season to our viewers,” said NetFlix's Cindy Holland in a press release.
Kohan added, "I am thrilled that Netflix has extended my sentence."
"We’re enormously proud of the brilliant work of Jenji, the cast and the entire production team,” said Lionsgate's Kevin Beggs continued, "and we’re delighted about this early second season renewal. Netflix has been a great partner on this series and we look forward to our continuing collaboration."
"Orange" will debut its first 13-episode season on Thursday, July 11, while the second season will begin production later this summer.
