'Orange is the New Black': Samira Wiley promoted to series regular
When Orange is the New Black returns, viewers will be seeing even more of Poussey Washington, played by Samira Wiley.
For the prison dramedy’s third season, Wiley will be promoted to series regular, EW has confirmed. Wiley has appeared on nearly every episode of the show so far — and fan-favorite Poussey has had an expanded role in season 2.
This means viewers will get more of Taystee and Poussey together, right?
Deadline first reported the news of Wiley’s promotion.

Jenji Kohan’s absorbing ensemble dramedy, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, takes viewers inside the walls of Litchfield, a minimum security women’s prison where nothing’s as simple as it seems—especially the inmates.
