Netflix has made a huge commitment to its original dramedy series Orange In The New Black, greenlighting an additional three seasons, the OTT service announced Friday.
The service has also set June 17 as the premiere date for season four, with additional seasons five, six and seven to debut in future years, said company officials.
In addition, Orange Is The New Black creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan has also been retained for three additional seasons and will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
“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,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.
