OMG, you guys — the TV gods have blessed us with the most amazing news EVER. Yep, season 3 of ‘OITNB’ is already streaming on Netflix a day earlier than it’s original release date!
Thought you couldn’t wait any longer for the third season of Orange Is The New Black to make it’s way online? Well, now you don’t have to! Instead of hitting Netflix at midnight on Friday, June 12, the ladies of Litchfield are available to watch right now. (Yes, you read that correctly!) But before you start binge-watching, read on because HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details about the show’s latest installment — straight from series star, Laverne Cox, 31, herself!
“It was the season I had most fun! It was so much fun and Sophia goes on a ride this season that is intense but it’s wonderful to play!” Laverne raves to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about what’s to come. “The theme that permeates this season is faith and I think we’re getting better as the season goes on. I mean how can somebody be so lucky to be on this show, it speaks out to our fans.”
Fans don’t have to wait anymore to catch Sophia’s story — or the rest of the inmates’ now that the show is back in action! The big surprise was announced during OrangeCon, an exclusive fan event held in New York City, where cast members Laverne, Uzo Aduba, Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Natasha Lyonne, Lea Delaria and more were all in attendance. During a cast panel, Uzo spilled the beans that the show was available to see a whole six hours ahead of schedule — a huge treat for fans!
Laverne explained to us why OITNB‘s viewers deserved such a special gift. “Our fans are so hardcore, we would be nothing without them,” the actress tells us. “It is a wonderful blessing.” Aww!
Ready to watch now? Be prepared — because this is the best season yet, according to Laverne! I’m consistently blown away by this season and how everybody does in it,” she says.
