Actress Marsha Stephanie Blake will play Litchfield’s new corrections officer in the third season of "Orange is the New Black."

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Details on Blake’s character are being kept under lock and key, but she will recur as a new corrections officer on the third season of the Taylor Schilling starrer.

Blake, whose credits include Django Unchained and Girls, joins a cast of fellow commanding officers including Pornstache (Pablo Schreiber), Bennett (Matt McGorry), Caputo (Nick Sandow), Fischer (Lauren Lapkus) and Fig (Alysia Reiner), among others. The latter two were seemingly written out during season two.

The new season’s premiere date hasn’t been announced.
