The Netflix series Orange is the New Black is now considered to be a Drama rather than a Comedy. That’s a change from how the show was categorized just last year. Then, one of the show’s stars, Uzo Abuda, took home an Emmy for her portrayal of Crazy Eyes in the program. Now, the show will no longer qualify for comedy-focused Emmys’ and will instead compete against Dramas for those awards.
The Emmys are scheduled to take place on September 20th this year, where all secrets will be revealed as stated on Twitter. Orange is the New Black is set to launch its third season before then. The popular Netflix show releases the entire season in one fatal swoop rather than broadcasting individual episodes each week.
