'Orange is the New Black' Season 3 Netflix Release Date, Lorraine Toussaint Not Returning for New Episodes
"Orange is the New Black" from Netflix has announced that Lorraine Toussaint, who played Vee, will not be returning for Season 3. "She is not going to be in season 3," a rep for Netflix told BuzzFeed.
Season 3 is currently wrapping up filming in New York and soon will be moving on to post-production for the new episodes. Lorraine has been spotted hanging around the set, so that was the reason for the speculation. Lorraine is currently starring on the new ABC series "Forever".
"Orange is the New Black" Season 3 is set to release in June 2015 on Netflix.
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'.
Alex Vause (Prepon) was not seen much in Season 2 as she was in hiding most of the season. "All the girls are so close, I feel like I never left," Pepron said. "Or like I was there all of season 2. We all wanted me to be there for more of season 2."
"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.
