Given the strength of its initial 2013 launch trailer, we weren't altogether surprised to see Netflix renewing 'Orange Is the New Black' for a second season before the first was even made available to view. It comes as even less of a surprise that the streaming service officially picked up 'Orange Is the New Black' season 3 for 2015, though their announcement method might have a few scratching their heads.
Perhaps not as flashy as its Netflix counterparts like 'Orange is the New Black' or 'House of Cards,' Ricky Gervais' quiet dramedy 'Derek' earned a considerable amount of praise in its inaugural season, at least enough to merit a second season this May.

We've heard precious little since Marvel's announcement of an epic Netflix 'Defenders' package to begin with 'Daredevil' in 2015, along with the decision that all five series would shoot in New York, but with casting in limbo, at least some news have emerged.

Fresh off his recent 'Community' season 5 cameo, we might have hoped 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz would at last dig his heels into a fifth season followup to the classic cult comedy's Netflix return, or at least a movie, but for now the streaming service is at least keeping Hurwitz close. Hurwitz has officially signed to develop new original series for Netflix, leaving the future of 'Arrested Development' unclear in the process.
Fans of Netflix's breakout original 'Orange is the New Black' were disheartened to learn that series star Laura Prepon would only return in a significantly reduced capacity for the second season , eventually confirmed to be four episodes, but whatever keeps Alex offscreen for the new season premiering June 6 seems to have fortunately fallen by the wayside. Could Laura Prepon's Alex be back full time for her precious Piper in season 3?
