Orange Is the New Black already has one foot on the door, however it’s eying a long ago into the room already. The Netflix display, which is able to come to an finish with its upcoming 7th season, is reportedly getting the by-product remedy. Kevin Beggs, chairman of the Lionsgate TV staff, which produces the Emmy-winning collection, mentioned in a contemporary income name that he’s in talks with display writer Jenji Kohan about making some other collection set in the Litchfield universe, in line with the Hollywood Reporter.
“We’re actually happy with the longer term that Orange Is the New Black had,” the exec mentioned all over an income name. “It remains one of Netflix’s most-watched shows. We’re ending on a high note. Keep in mind we own that series and will be distributing it for years to come. We’re already in discussions and, when the timing is right, we’ll talk further with Jenji about a potential sequel.”
Sources inform T.H.R. that not anything professional is in the works but, despite the fact that concepts were bandied about. Netflix has now not commented on the information. In an interview with T.H.R. in July, O.I.T.N.B. government manufacturer Tara Herrmann did say that the crew had entertained a number of by-product concepts, equivalent to a Broadway manufacturing, or a jaunt into the lives of like Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs) and Polly Harper (Maria Dizzia), or the hippie-dippie Cal (Michael Chernus) and Carol Chapman (Deborah Rush). But Herrmann wired that those are most effective concepts for now, particularly since the primary display remains to be ongoing.
“We want people to pay attention to the show we’re making, not a musical number with Piper and Alex,” she mentioned. “But that could happen in the future. Who knows!”
Considering her ideas, it sort of feels secure to think that the by-product would perhaps happen out of doors of jail partitions. The display has excelled at stringing in combination a constellation of compelling characters, so tossing a whole collection to one among them turns out like a herbal subsequent step—although our age of relentless spinoffs and reboots knocks a few of the shine off this concept. But taking into account how the display’s target audience feels about characters like Larry Bloom—sorry, Biggs!—one can most effective hope Kohan and co. don’t cross that path.
