(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.

    You’re telling me that I have to wait until next year to see the next season? I can’t wait. I watched all 13 episodes in one night. So what if I had to go to work the next day. The writing for this show is superb. These characters are not the trite two-dimensional characters of other shows. They are very real. I love the flashbacks of characters showing each one’s history and reason they are in prison. I also love how the characters grow and change with time in prison. My hats off to the writers, director, and producer. You’ve created a winner. I hope Netflix creates more series of this quality. This is a great way to expand business.

    Wow… 13 great shows! Watched them all within a week. Pretty gritty and real. I felt for nearly all the characters and the acting… FIRST RATE! She’s really gets to her wits end and the ending of the last episode is, well, somewhat expected but still great. I look forward to next season. On my radar for sure.

    I watched the entire season in one day. That is saying a lot because I am one that is easily bored. Can’t wait for season 2. Lets get it done!!

    OITNB is one of the most intelligent shows I have seen. It is honest, gritty, funny, sad, loving, hateful, pretty much the best presentation of the human race in any media. If you watch first four or so episodes, you should not make any judgments. Watch all 13 episodes before you say or think about this show. I went through so many emotions watching the brilliance of character development unfold, it became almost real to me. Best show on any media today. I can see why Netflix gave it a second year before airing the first. And……what an ending! I cannot wait to see what happens next!

    I loved this show. I finished it quickly. I’m sure ill watch it again. So glad it renewed for another year! It’s my favorite show right now. It’s gonna be had to wait a year. The characters are great! They are tackling some good issues. Prison reflects the general population. This does too , and should continue. Thanks creators. I laugh , I cry, I judge, amazing show.
