Showrunner Jenji Kohan released the following statement: “Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things. In some cultures, ‘May you lead an interesting life,’ is a curse, but I don’t live in those cultures. Here’s to keeping it interesting.”
And in true OITNB fashion, cast members took to Twitter to celebrate:
Just announced: 3 more seasons of @OITNB Wowzer!!! We're renewed for not 1 not 2 but 3
