Netflix has announced plans to produce new seasons of its original series 'Orange is the New Black' and 'Master of None.' 'Orange is the New Black' has been renewed through season seven, guaranteeing at least three more years. Meanwhile, 'Master of None' has been granted a second season order.
"Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt. Audiences around the world have come to love the ladies and men of Orange is the New Black, and we are eager to see where three more seasons will take them," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.

The show is based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, and follows a privileged New Yorker who ends up in a women's prison when a past crime catches up with her. The series is produced by 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan.
'Masters of None' is a comedy/drama series created by and starring Aziz Ansari. The show follows New Yorker Dev as he tackles such pillars of maturity as his first big job, a serious relationship, and busting sex offenders on the subway.
