Deadline reports that Adrienne C. Moore, who plays the wise-cracking Black Cindy, has been promoted to series regular for the third season.
We have to say we're really excited about this news, and we hope it means that Black Cindy also has an increased role in Season 2. In Season 1 she was full of witty one-liners, but she wasn't the most fleshed out of characters. Hopefully this promotion is a sign we'll be seeing even more of her soon!
So far, not much else is known about the third season. However, this casting announcement shouldn't come as a surprise, since the show also promoted a fair number of actors between Season 1 and 2, including upping Danielle Brooks (Taystee) and Taryn Manning (Pennsatucky) to series regulars.
