"Orange is the New Black" Season 3 is currently filming in New York and reports are that the new season is almost complete and will move on to post-production soon.
Cast stars Laura Prepon and Uzo Aduba sat down recently for an international interview sharing about their experiences on the show and what fans can expect moving forward. You can check out their interview
When Prepon is asked what it is like to work with such a mixed team, she shares, "It's amazing, because fortunately I have been doing a long time and worked on incredible projects but honestly this show is extremely different. It's really compelling television and (creator) Jenji Kohan pushes the envelope in such a wonderful way. As actresses, when you are working in a prison and stripped of all of your creature comforts (hair, make-up, etc) it's such an incredibly vulnerable and amazing place to be. And the fact of having these incredible co-stars and we support each other so much, it's one of the favorite jobs that I've ever done."
The hit Netflix show has also announced that they are bringing back Lori Petty (Tank Girl, League of Their Own) for the upcoming third season of the hit Netflix show. She will continue her role as Lolly, who Piper (Taylor Schilling) meets on a transport plane. Also announced guest stars appearing in "Orange is the New Black" Season 3 are Mary Steenburgen, Blair Brown, and Mike Birbiglia.
"Orange is the New Black" was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards this year and Taylor Schilling was also nominated for 'Best Actress'.
"Honestly, I would say that the fans are incredible and the fans of the show are some of the best fans I've ever come across and that we will exceed their expectations in Season 3 and I think that they're going to be really pleased," Prepon shared. Read full interview HERE.
The show is based around Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman that gets sent to prison 10 years after she got caught up in transporting drug money across international lines. "Orange is the New Black" is made by 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan, and is based on the true story of Piper Kerman's year spent in prison that she wrote about in her memoir.
"Orange is the New Black" became the latest hit series for Netflix after a surprisingly huge reaction to its first season this summer. Netflix has hit the right formula lately with the hugely successful "House of Cards" Season 1 & 2 releasing to great reviews as well. "House of Cards" Season 2 released earlier in 2014. "Orange is the New Black" Season 1 raised eyebrows for it's controversial yet honest portrayal of prison life for women that is not been discussed much in popular culture especially through a series.
"Orange is the New Black" Season 3 is set to release in June 2015 on Netflix.
