Hooray! Drink some wine straight from the toilet because we're all going back to prison!

Netflix has renewed "Orange Is the New Black" for a third season, has confirmed.

The news comes ahead of Season 2's premiere on Friday, June 6. Netflix made a similar move last year when it renewed the women's prison dramedy before any episodes had aired.

Word of the Season 3 order made the rounds via that ever-increasingly popular mode of breaking news: actors' social media accounts. Laura Prepon, who plays incarcerated lesbian drug runner Alex Vause, posted a picture (warning: NSFW language) of a white board with potential episode titles for the season to her Instagram account, with the caption "It's official!! Season 3!!"

According to a later tweet by "Orange Is the New Black" writer Lauren Morelli, the new season has already been in the works for some time. "Know how the FBI can't disclose what they're working on? The last month in the [Orange Is the New Black] writer's room has been like that with lower stakes," she wrote.
