Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey Washington on Orange is the New Black, has been promoted to series regular for the Netflix series’ third season.

Samira Wiley Promoted To Regular

During Wiley’s run on Orange is the New Black, Poussey has appeared in nearly every episode. Like Danielle Brooks (Taystee) before her, she’s earned a promotion to series regular, reported Deadline. With both actresses on as regulars for season three, it wouldn’t be a surprise if their friendship received even more screen time going forward.

Prior to landing the role of Poussey on Orange, Wiley appeared in features The Sitter and Being Flynn. She also had guest-starring roles on Unforgettable and Person of Interest. Following her success on the Netflix prison comedy-drama, Wiley appeared in Rob the Mob as Agent Annie Bell.

Orange is the New Black premiered its entire second season on Netflix Friday, June 6. So far, the show’s sophomore effort has received critical acclaim and positive reactions from fans of the first series.
