Netflix is extending its prison term: Orange Is the New Black has been renewed for a fourth season. Uzo Aduba, an Emmy winner for her role as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on the hit dramedy, made the announcement on Good Morning America Wednesday.
"Season four is now the new news," Aduba told George Stephanopoulos. The cast reports back to work in June. Aduba also previewed a new clip featuring her character, plus Samira Wiley as Poussey, Danielle Brooks as Taystee, Adrienne C. Moore as Black Cindy. In the scene, the characters discuss the fate of Vee (Lorraine Toussaint). According to Poussey, Vee is dead. But Crazy Eyes maintains Vee is alive and well.
"Vee is fine! She's coming back for me," Crazy Eyes said in the clip, which you can see below. Is Taystee the new Crazy Eyes whisperer?!
Basically, their conversation is exactly the same one you've been having with your friends. The fate of Vee remains a mystery after the season two finale!
The award-winning series is returning for a third season on Friday, June 12, with several new and returning faces, as well as a few missing folks. Lori Petty, the League of Their Own star who first appeared in the season two premiere, will be back as Lolly, the Vaseline smuggling inmate. Ruby Rose, Mary Steenburgen, Blair Brown and Mike Birbiglia will also appear.
Gone from season three are Jason Biggs and Pablo Schreiber. But just because he was doing How to Get Away With Murder doesn't mean Matt McGorry will disappear; he's sticking around.
Orange Is the New Black season three premieres June 12. Season four will premiere in 2016.
