Orange is the New Black Season 3 has announced another new cast addition with Australian model, Ruby Rose. She will be a new love interest for main characters Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Alex Vause (Laura Prepon). Piper and Alex will fight over affection and attention from Rose's character, Stella Carlin. 

Rose shared the news on her Facebook page a few weeks back writing, "Grab yourself a copy of U.S ELLE MAGAZINE and read about my new role on a small unheard of series called Orange Is The New Black. Haha I am very excited and honored to be named one of the Magazine's fresh faces on TV to watch in 2015."

Orange is the New Black Season 3 has wrapped up filming and the new episodes will premiere on Netflix this June 2015. More casting updates have surfaced about the new season including Poussey (Samira Wiley) having a larger role. In Season 2, Poussey alienated herself from the other girls after her disagreement with Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) on how she was running things. 

Black Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore) will also have an expanded role in Season 3. Last season, viewers learned some of her back story that had to do with her mother and daughter. In Season 3, fans may finally figure out why she is in jail.  

The cast and crew have keep pretty quiet but one thing that we have learned though is that Season 3 will be exploring the subject of 'faith' shared show creator, Jenji Kohan. 

Orange is the New Black was nominated for 12 Emmy Awards this year and Taylor Schilling was also nominated for 'Best Actress'. 

The show is based around Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman that gets sent to prison 10 years after she got caught up in transporting drug money across international lines. "Orange is the New Black" is made by 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan, and is based on the true story of Piper Kerman's year spent in prison that she wrote about in her memoir.

Orange is the New Black became the latest hit series for Netflix after a surprisingly huge reaction to its first season this summer.  Netflix has hit the right formula lately with the hugely successful House of Cards Season 1 & 2 releasing to great reviews as well. House of Cards Season 2 released earlier in 2014.
