OMG, not ‘OITNB!’ A breaking news report claims that ‘Orange Is The New Black’ has been abruptly cancelled by Netflix. Is it true? Read on for the WHOLE truth behind the shocking TV report.
Orange Is The New Black just returned with all 13 brand new episodes on June 6 — and pretty much everyone in the world stayed at home to binge watch the second season of hit show. We’ll NEVER see a season three, according to a report that details Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings explaining why the show “has been permanently cancelled.”
‘Orange Is The New Black’ Cancelled By Netflix: Is It True?
The prison-focused show was JUST renewed for a third season in June, but now Netflix has decided to abruptly end production, claims Empire News.
“We regret to inform Netflix members that Orange is the New Black has been permanently cancelled. Also, starting September 1st, 2014, past episodes will no longer be available for streaming on Netflix,” the website quotes Reed as saying. What! How can this possibly be true?
“Empire News is a satirical and entertainment website. We only use invented names in all our stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental,” the website’s disclaimer reads.
Phew. Thankfully this was all just a hoax! But fans still totally freaked out about the vicious rumor.

“It sucked because [show creator] Jenji Kohan and I wanted me to be in it more, but with the schedule, it didn’t happen,” Laura opened up to Us Weekly, “I was so bummed out. But I handled it, so I’m in every [episode] in season three. It is so good.”
