(Beverly Hills, CA – June 27, 2013) – The Netflix Original Series, “Orange is the New Black,” the comedic drama set in a women’s prison from creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan (“Weeds”) will return with a second season on Netflix in 2014.

Produced by Lionsgate Television, the hour-long series starring Taylor Schilling, and based on the popular memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, is set to debut its first 13-episode season on Thursday, July 11 at 12:01 AM PDT in all territories where Netflix is available – U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Latin America, Brazil and the Nordics.

“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal series and we’re eager to get a second season to our viewers,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.”

“I am thrilled that Netflix has extended my sentence,” said series creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan.

“We’re enormously proud of the brilliant work of Jenji, the cast and the entire production team,” said Kevin Beggs, president, Lionsgate Television Group, “and we’re delighted about this early second season renewal. Netflix has been a great partner on this series and we look forward to our continuing collaboration.”

“Orange is the New Black” follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and 15-month long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiancĂ© Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates. The series’ diverse ensemble also includes Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.

The second season of “Orange is the New Black” is set to begin production later this summer.

“Orange is the New Black” is executive produced by Kohan. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix.

    Stayed up way too late as I couldn’t help going to the next episode. Anxious for the next season. No weak links in the cast.

    Wife and I watched first 13 episodes as quickly as possible. Bring on next season. Show is great. Characters are real. Dialogue promotes events to come. Excellent storytelling. Runs like locomotive on full throttle.

    Just finished season 1 and loved it! Watched it in two days! Great story and characters. Flashbacks invest you in bigger picture and provide depth, and perspective. Looking forward to season 2! Just need a better advertising machine soI know when Jenji is putting something out! #Weedsfan

    I don’t like watching movies that run in a series, that is why I have always hated daytime soaps, ahhhh. But, this series is like a mini story in each show that surprisingly has a beginning and an end in every show. I just wanted to watch them all, and I did in two days. I don’t even waych movies twice. Each show catches you quickly in the beginning and it doesn’t leave you hanging. Even though each show has the same characters, their is something to start you on the edge right away. I am so happy to be a subscriber of Netflix and watch this season of Orange Is The New Black. It ended with a bang and am so relieved they are going to have a season 2, horay…I am now eagerly waiting to see what happens next. Magnificent writing and well put together of actors for the characters, which I love and hate. The writer creatively writes in each show how one of the characters got onto trouble landing them in the federal prison. Netflix, congratulations again for bringing me this series, Orange Is The New Black, on a scale from 1-10, I give this series a 15!
