“Orange Is the New Black” Renewed for Season 3

The prison term was just extended: "Orange Is the New Black" is coming back for season three.

Laura Prepon, who stars on the hit Netflix series as Alex Vause, made the announcement on her Instagram page. Prepon appeared in much of the first season of "OITNB," but will only return for a handful of episodes for the upcoming second season. However, she will have a larger part in the just announced third season.

"Orange Is the New Black" is reportedly Netflix's most-watched original show...but Netflix doesn't reveal how many viewers actually watch their programming. Netflix previously renewed the dramedy for a second season before the first one premiered.
