It’s only been a few days since the debut of Lilyhammer, Netflix’s first foray into scripted original programming, but it seems the company is already eager for more. Reports have surfaced that Netflix has ordered a thirteen-episode season of its second original series, Orange is the New Black, from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan. Although the deal has not yet been formally announced — confirmation so far has come from an anonymous source “with knowledge of the situation” — it backs up stories dating back to late last year that Netflix was negotiating a deal for the series. More details after the jump.
