However, a rep for Netflix, which produces and distributes the series, denied the report. "It's not accurate. Our season is still developing and nothing is confirmed," according to a spokesperson.
Netflix renewed Orange Is the New Black in early July — days before the first season premiered to rave reviews on July 11. Season 2 started filming last month to premiere sometime in 2014.
