If the Golden Globes can reward Lady Gaga, surely ScreenCrush can recognize TV’s best too, right? Right? By gum, we’re going to try.
Orange Is the New Black - Page 2
A few weeks back, bizarre news that Netflix’s Fuller House had viewership on par with The Walking Dead caught us by surprise, and it seems the Tanners may be unstoppable on the streaming service. That strange cell phone app analyzing viewership data by audio reveals Orange Is the New Black Season 4 came close, but Fuller House remains Netflix’s crown jewel.
FXX favorite and critical darling You’re the Worst won’t continue its worst impulses for Season 3 until late August, but that isn’t stopping the series from a timely addition. Fresh off Orange Is the New Black Season 4 this past weekend, Samira Wiley has broken out of Litchfield and made a run for Gretchen and Jimmy’s out west.
Lest you think that three more seasons of Orange Is the New Black would keep creator Jenji Kohan locked up, the former Weeds boss is already eying another enclosure for Netflix - the ring. ‘80s women’s wrestling league G.L.O.W. will get a revival of sorts on the streaming outlet, reborn as a 10-episode comedy set within the real-life league.
The third season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black left Litchfield on a quietly ominous note, that for all the unexpected beach days, a busload of new prisoners would join the rapidly-filling halls. Things seem to have taken a turn for the worse by Season 4, as overcrowding and some harsh new guards take the first 2016 Orange is the New Black trailer in a decidedly dark direction.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Lest you think Netflix would ever cut you a break from its original programming, the ladies of Litchfield are already gearing up Orange is the New Black Season 4 promotion. Piper may not be the only one in trouble, however, according to the first new photos of the season.
Lest you think Piper was ever getting out of prison, Netflix has added three more terms to her sentence. That’s right, Orange is the New Black has been renewed for three more seasons, locking down the ladies of Litchfield through 2019 with Seasons 5, 6 and 7.
As expected, there’s lots of big news coming from Netflix ahead of their panel at TCA ’16, and in addition to finally renewing Marvel’s Jessica Jones for Season 2, the streaming service has set a return date for Orange Is the New Black Season 4. We’re sure to learn more about the coming season once the panel commences, but expect our return to Litchfield to resolve a few of those lingering cliffhangers.
Netflix has made no secret of how secret they keep any sort of “ratings” data for their original programming, a constant source of frustration to networks still under the Nielsen model, itself no longer a valid measurement of a given show’s audience. Now, NBC claims to have gotten a bit of payback, utilizing some unique approaches to measure Netflix’s overall viewers, and suggesting it on par with broadcast.
