Netflix has renewed Orange is the New Black for a fourth season, the streaming service announced Wednesday.
OITNB's third season starts streaming on June 12, with the fourth season arriving in 2016, Netflix said.
The Jenji Kohan dramedy is the latest hit Netflix series to be renewed for another season. Earlier this month, Netflix ordered a fourth season of House of Cards, and days before that it ordered a second season of its new family thriller Bloodline, from the creators of Damages.
The third season of OITNB marks the return of Alex (Laura Prepon) and the arrival of Ruby Rose's Stella.
OITNB has won more than 20 awards, including three of the 10 Emmys for which it has been nominated, two SAG awards, two People's Choice awards, an NAACP Image award, a Peabody and a PGA award. The series has also been nominated for a Directors Guild award, four Golden Globes and six Writers Guild awards.
