Orange will remain in fashion for at least several more years: Netflix announced that it has renewed "Orange Is the New Black" for three more seasons, ensuring it will run on the streaming service at least through season seven.

Netflix made the news official on Friday, and also said that series creator and showrunner Jenji Kohan would remain on board throughout the next three seasons.

"Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things," said Kohan in a statement. "In some cultures, 'May you lead an interesting life' is a curse, but I don't live in those cultures. Here's to keeping it interesting."

"Orange" has certainly done just that in its first three seasons, earning multiple Emmy nominations -- in both the drama and comedy categories, one of the few shows in television history to do so -- and taking home numerous prizes since it first hit Netflix back in 2013. Star Uzo Aduba has been the most decorated member of the cast, with two Emmys and two individual Screen Actors Guild Awards to her name; the entire cast also took home the Best TV Comedy Ensemble SAG Award two years in a row, collecting its most recent trophy last month.

The fourth season of "Orange Is the New Black" debuts on Netflix on June 17.
