The renewal news also appeared on Ecumenical News, which added that late spring 2015 is a likely premiere date for the show's third season.

The first season of the show was highly praised, and it recently won the GLAAD Media Award for outstanding comedy. The award recognized and honored the show's representation of diversity and LGBT issues. Taylor Schilling, who plays the main character Piper Chapman, was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Lead Actress.
