Fresh off of a major SAG Award win, the cast of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black can continue on their blissful high.

It’s been confirmed that the comedy series has been picked up for three more seasons. Netflix revealed the news on Twitter in a hilarious post that read:

“Our sentence has been extended. 3 more seasons, b*tches.”

“Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things. In some cultures, ‘May you lead an interesting life,’ is a curse, but I don’t live in those cultures,” show runner and producer Jenji Kohan said in a statement. “Here’s to keeping it interesting. Thanks Netflix! Both thanks and you’re welcome Lionsgate!”

She added, “And kudos and gratitude to the stellar cast and crew and writers and producers and editors and musicians and mixers and shleppers … with whom I have the pride and honor of crafting this show. Three more years! Three more years!”

Season 4 is set to premiere on Friday, June 17 and as we head into the new season, HipHollywood has learned exclusively just what to expect.

We caught up with the cast during the 2016 SAG Awards who didn’t give a ton of details, but they did (although not necessary) convince us why we must tune in. “To tell you the truth I love Season 4, there is so much drama going on,” Vicky Jeudy told us. “You guys will break the Internet when Season 4 releases. Trust me.”

Jessica Pimentel added, “There’s is nothing I can say that could describe to you how brutal Season 4 is.”

And according to Adrienne C. Moore, we will be in utter shock. “We always surprise you in a way that always leaves you feeling so many different emotions. That shock that leaves you feeling like ‘am I mad, am I angry, am I sad, am I happy?’ That’s what I say the culmination of Season 4 definitely will give you that again.”

Sound off: Are you excited for the next round of OITNB?

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
