The right-back was a prominent figure in Rovers' defence after joining from QPR, but was shipped out on a three-month loan deal to npower Championship rivals Ipswich after losing his place under Henning Berg.
However, following the Norwegian's departure and Michael Appleton's arrival, Orr is once again loving his football at Ewood Park.
"I'm really enjoying it," Orr told the club's official website.
"I just love playing football and certainly for a great club like Blackburn. It is a privilege for someone like myself.
"What happened earlier on in the season was a little bit out of my hands. I was told more or less to find myself a club.
"But football changes all the time.
"The staff at the club changed and the new manager came in and gave me a phone call straight away, he said he saw a role for me at the club still, which was obviously very encouraging for me."
