SHARE ‘Orange is the New Black’ gets early release: season 3 out now

It might be a sleepy morning for a lot of workers Friday – the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” is out early and available for streaming.

Let the binging begin.

The good news of a paroled season was announced Thursday evening on Twitter:

The gift comes courtesy of cast member Uzo Adubo, who coerced Netflix CEO Reed Hastings into dropping the season hours early to the delight of a crowd of fans at OrangeCon in New York City, according to Hollywood Reporter.

The move was announced at the fan-filled OrangeCon event in New York City, at which Uzo Adubo stood up during the cast panel to ask Netflix boss Reed Hastings (over a video call) what should premiere at OrangeCon. One episode? … Two episodes? … What if we showed them the whole season? she asked, to a ton of cheers. Hastings then smiled and agreed, sending fans into a loud frenzy as the anticipated dozen episodes hit the web.
