With the Netflix series set to end its run next year, Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs told reporters during an earnings call today that the studio is considering a potential sequel with Jenji Kohan. "We're really proud of the long run that Orange Is the New Black had," said Beggs. "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." According to The Hollywood Reporter, the talks for a follow-up series have been going on for quite some time.
