Showcase are bringing us the entire run of Orange is the new Black’s third season in one marathon event at the same time the show premiere’s in the US – Jan 12th!
It’s great news for fans of the quirky prison drama (who have access to Showtime via Foxtel) as the channel is also planning a seasons one and two marathon prior to the onset of season three.
So what can we expect for season three? Netflix are keeping most details hush hush but we already know that local Ruby Rose has joined the cast and that Jason Biggs will not be returning (for season three at least).
Veteran actor Mary Steenburgen will appear playing Pornstache’s (Mendez) mother but how exaclty that will play out considering his current imprisonment and that actor Pablo Schreiber who plays Mendez is a series regular on another show (The brink) and Laura Prepon’s Alex Vause will return as a major player again after being somewhat absent for most of season two.
So mark your calendars – June 12th for the entire third season of Orange is the new Black on Showcase!
How exciting! The future is looking a little more orange for the stunning Aussie presenter/DJ/model Ruby Rose after announcing that she’ll be joining the cast for the hugely popular prison comedy/drama Orange is the New Black’s third season.
Making the announcement via US Elle magazine, Rose used twitter to let us all in on her characters name with the hashtag #StellaIsHere.
The upcoming third season will see Rose as Stella Carlin, an inmate “whose sarcastic sense of humor and captivating looks quickly draw the attention of some of Litchfield’s inmates.” including Alex Vause (Laura Prepon) and Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling).
The news of Ruby’s involvement in series three has already boosted the talented Aussie’s profile in the US with numerous news and entertainment outlets jumping on the Ruby Rose bandwagon.
In addition to the casting of Rose to season three, familiar faces from season one and two including Samira Wiley (Poussey), Yael Stone (Morello), Dascha Polanco (Diaz), Selenis Leyva (Mendoza), Adrienne C. Moore (Black Cindy), and Nick Sandow (Caputo) have all been upgraded to series regulars!
Orange is the New Black doesn’t return until June where it will stream to Netflix subscribers while here in Australia, Foxtel channel Showcase airs the series.
