It's been over a week since Orange Is the New Black Season 2 was released, which means most fans of the prison drama have already devoured all 13 episodes and are jonesing for more. While Season 3 is still a long way off — it doesn't have an official release date, but most assume it won't be out until 2015 — there are already a few bits of info about what next year holds.
So far, the cast and crew are staying mostly mum about the season, but here's everything we know about it. Keep checking back; we'll keep you updated as more info rolls in!
Filming has already started. That was fast!
Alex is back. Good news for Alex Vause fans: Laura Prepon is back as a series regular next year. We're assuming this means she lands back in Litchfield after getting caught with a gun while on parole in the Season 2 finale, though with this show, you never know.
Promotions galore! Samira Wiley (Poussey Washington), Adrienne C. Moore (Black Cindy), Dascha Polanco (Daya), and Yael Stone (Lorna Morello) have all been promoted to series regulars for next year. Congrats, gals!
Casting news. We already know that Oscar-winning actress Mary Steenburgen will be joining the cast. Awesome. Can't wait to find out more about her character!
