‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season 3 Release Date Revealed, Along With Plot Details And Episode Titles

One of Netflix’s most popular original shows, Orange is the New Black, is getting its third season. The people at Netflix have officially released some new information on when fans can expect the show to return, as well as what new actors they’ll be seeing and a few details about upcoming Orange is the New Black story lines.

According to the official Twitter page, Orange is the New Black will be available to stream on Netflix June 12 of 2015. That may seem far away for hardcore Orange is the New Black fanatics, but there are a lot more tidbits to feast on while we wait for the third season.

The Inquisitr already reported that Mike Birbiglia will be joining the cast of Orange Is The New Black, recently known for his role in The Fault in Our Stars. But some new players will also be added to the crew, including Mary Steenburgen and Blair Brown. However, a few regulars won’t be returning to Orange is the New Black, including Jason Biggs (Larry Bloom) and Pablo Schreiber (Mendez). Rumors are also circulating that Diane Guerrero won’t be reprising her role as Maritza Ramos.

The actress Laverne Cox recently talked about the filming of Season 3 of Orange is the New Black, and what the fans can expect from the new episodes.

“We started shooting season three the first week of June. We should be done around the end of this year,” Cox told MTV News. “It’s amazing. I think more of [what we saw in season two], but what our show does so well is it has a balance between the very serious and the comedic.”

According to The Air Herald, the co-creator of the show, Jenji Kohan, said the theme of the third season of Orange is the New Black will be “faith.” It has also been leaked that season 3 will have more violence than the previous seasons, and some more spicy sex scenes — ncluding one between the lead protagonist Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) and her ex-girlfriend Alex Voss (played by Laura Prepon).
