Orange Is The New Black Season 3: Lea DeLaria becomes series regular

We're getting closer and closer to the release of Orange Is The New Black Season 3 on Netflix. As the cast and crew prepare to recommence filming, fans will notice much more of Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo, as she becomes a regular character in the fourth season

With the Season 3 premiere of Netflix's hit series just around the corner and the confirmed renewal of Orange Is The New Black for Season 4, fans can expect to learn a great deal about the Litchfield ladies who certainly don't look to be getting out of prison any time soon. Specifically speaking, viewers will be seeing a lot more of Carrie "Big Boo" Black in the fourth season, as it was announced recently that actress Lea DeLaria will be a regular on the series from now on. We have been shown most of the main characters' back stories explaining how they ended up in the slammer, but although Big Boo has appeared on the show since Season 1, her history has not yet been told. It is probable that we will find out more about her in Season 4, if not in the upcoming Season 3. In previous seasons, it was common to see Big Boo acting sarcastic and antagonistic with her fellow inmates in order to feel dominant. Big Boo started out as quite unlikable and annoying, but viewers have seen that she's tenderhearted deep down inside, especially when she was taking care of Little Boo, a therapy dog given to help treat her anxiety.

In Season 2, though, Big Boo acted in an unforgivable manner when she betrayed Red and told Vee about Red's contraband tunnel. This resulted in Big Boo losing all of her friends, being shunned by Red's prison family and dismissed by Vee for being a snitch. It seems, however, like things are looking up for Big Boo in the third season. The Orange Is The New Black Season 3 trailer shows viewers a quick glimpse of Big Boo and Pensatucky having a nice bonding moment. We also see that Big Boo will get a makeover from Sophia. Instead of a butch hairstyle, it looks like she'll be sporting a chic-looking bob and red lipstick. We wonder how long that will last though, especially since Big Boo did not seem to like her transformation in the teaser. In fact, she looks horrified at her reflection! Fellow actress Jackie Cruz was also promoted to a regular character for Season 4, portraying Flaca Gonzales on Orange Is The New Black since Season 1. Are you excited to see more of Big Boo and Flaca, and will you be tuning into Season 3? Let us know your thoughts.
