It's been a few months since Orange Is the New Black Season 2 was released, which means most fans of the prison drama have already devoured all 13 episodes at least once (and often many more times!) 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. And yes, her reaction to Piper's (Taylor Schilling) betrayal is going to play a big role in the new season.
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!
No Pornstache. Sadly, Pornstache will not be making an appearance — but his mom, played by Mary Steenburgen, will be.
Casting news. We also know that Fringe's Blair Brown and comedian Mike Birbiglia will be joining the cast.
