A few weeks ago 'Orange is the New Black' fans were excited to learn that star Taryn Manning (Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett) has been upgraded to series regular for season 2, despite the season 1 ending that left her character's fate somewhat unclear. Still unclear however, is the fate of co-star Laura Prepon, so what does Manning have to say of Prepon's potential exit, or her own arc in season 2?
Fans of Netflix's critically-acclaimed original series 'Orange is the New Black' would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite aspect of the series, though the dry presence of former 'That 70's Show' star Laura Prepon's Alex would surely prove a favorite. That may make news of the latest 'Orange is the New Black' season 2 castings hard to bear, as Prepon will reportedly take a minimal role in season 2, before exiting entirely.
Though Netflix's critically-acclaimed original series 'Orange in the New Black' has scarcely been out a month, already the Jenji Kohan-produced series has begun shoring up its cast for the confirmed second season in 2014. In addition to the earlier announcement that series' antagonist Taryn Manning had been upped to series regular despite her character's ambiguous fate, 'Orange is the New Black' has upped two more of Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling)'s prison co-stars up to series regular.
Regardless of mixed fan reception to 'Arrested Development''s first original Netflix run, it seems near of every classic gag received a reprise, if not more in season 4. That said, we couldn't help notice a few stragglers like fan-favorite Franklin Delano Bluth getting left on the cutting room floor, but we can definitely expect a return in either season 5 or a movie, says creator Mitch Hurwitz!
Netflix's recent Emmy recognition had only just begun before the critically acclaimed 'Orange is the New Black' hit the scene, so will Ricky Gervais' controversial new series 'Derek' continue the streak?

A few weeks ago we heard the comforting, if not unexpected news that 'Arrested Development' would likely return to Netflix for a fifth installment, and now series creator Mitch Hurwitz has stepped in to all-but-confirm. Hurwitz believes the next round of 'Arrested Development' will definitely happen, but what changes from the recent fourth season will be implemented?
Though the buzz from all Netflix original series dies down a bit once all episodes have been released, word of mouth and season 2 for 'Orange Is the New Black,' from 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan, remains strong. In addition to its early season 2 renewal, the women-in-prison drama has officially made its first major season 2 casting, bumping up an established character for a surprising promotion.
Fan reaction to 'Arrested Development' season 4 ran the gamut from "brilliant!" to "boring!" but there can be no denying fans of the legendarily irreverent comedy want more -- either as the long-awaited film, or another Netflix season. That wish may officially come true, as reports indicate Netflix has officially entered negotiations for another round of 'Arrested Development!'
It could be a while yet before we learn if 'Arrested Development' will continue on into a fifth season, or potentially even the long-awaited movie, but fans of the legendarily irreverent series needn't wait that long for the next been continuation of the franchise.
