Netflix's ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Picked Up For 3 More Seasons

Clearly people love what they see on the hit TV series ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK as Netflix announces the show has been picked up for an additional 3 more seasons.

From Variety:

The renewal comes on the heels of “OITNB’s” strong showing at Saturday’s SAG Awards, where the show took the comedy ensemble award for the second year in a row and the comedy actress trophy for star Uzo Abdua for the second straight year.

Netflix is famously tight-fisted when it comes to offering up viewership data about its original series. But execs with the streaming giant have repeatedly confirmed that “OITNB” is its most-watched original series. That has been backed up by the efforts of outside measurement companies to track viewing in the Netflix eco-system.

I've never heard of a TV drama being picked up for that many more new seasons. It speaks volumes as to the quality and popularity of the show.

The new season drops on June 17th.
