The ladies of Litchfield Correctional Institution just got their sentences extended: Netflix has renewed “Orange Is the New Black” for a fourth season, set for 2016.
On the third run, all the main women remain incarcerated, with even Alex (Laura Prepon) making her return to the women’s prison. Plus, new felon Stella (Ruby Rose) enters the fray.
In the above clip from the coming season, Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) and Poussey (Samira Wiley) nearly rumble in the cafeteria over whether Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) became roadkill or not at the end of Season 2. A correctional officer and Taystee (Danielle Brooks) have to squash the beef before it gets ugly.
Last month, the Television Academy ruled that “Orange Is the New Black” must enter the Emmy Awards race as a drama going forward, due to a previously reported change in rules. The one-hour dramedy previously competed in the comedy category.
A few days prior, the oversight group ruled that “Glee,” “Shameless” and “Jane The Virgin” can still enter as comedies.
