‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 3 officially premiered – 6 hours ahead of schedule

Are you waiting in suspense to see what’s become of your pals Piper, Alex, Daya, Taystee and Crazy Eyes and the rest of the gang locked up in the federal pen for various criminal acts in ‘Orange is the New Black’?

Wait no more. Netflix tweeted that it released season 3 six hours before its scheduled launch time. Originally set to hit Netflix on Friday at 12:01 am Pacific time, it debuted Thursday a little after 6 pm Pacific. 

The change was announced at OrangeCon, a fan event in New York that includes cast members Uzo Aduba, Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Laverne Cox and more. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings demonstrated some – ahem – good behavior in complying with the request to air the show early.

‘Orange Is the New Black’ is based on the memoir by Piper Kerman, who served time on drug charges. It has been renewed for a fourth season. We apologize in advance if we’ve just caused you to stay up all night.
