‘Orange Is The New Black’ Renewed For Third Season On Netflix

Big news for "Orange Is The New Black" fans. We know season two premieres exactly one month from now, and we can confirm the Litchfield ladies will return for a third season!

Laura Prepon, who plays drug runner Alex Vause in the series, shared the news on Twitter and Instagram with fans.

"It's official!! Season 3! #oitnb #alexvause #backtothebighouse," she wrote.

The former "Are You There, Chelsea?" star shared a photo of possible season titles.

Prepon recently sat down with The Daily Beast to discuss her future with the show. We reported that Alex Vause will appear in four episodes this season, but will return full-time for season three!

"Basically, I wasn't a series regular and wasn't under contract, and then had a scheduling conflict that came up during season two," she told the publication. "A lot of our jobs is about timing. ... When you're not under a "series regular" contract and other jobs come up, you try to juggle everything."

She then added, "But I love the show, and I love my character, and I told Jenji from the get-go, 'I want to be in as many as I can.' So we did, and I'll be in four episodes for Season 2," she said.

A Netflix representative confirmed to The Huffington Post the writers have begun work on the next season.

Prepon is not the only character speaking out on her role. Actress Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren, tells The Telegraph how her famous one-liners stem from improv.

"When we were shooting it, I just said: 'chocolate and vanilla swirl.' I never ever would have imagined that it would become something on Twitter, that I'd have people sending me photos of ice cream."

The show's creator Jenji Kohan, who also brought us "Weeds," praised Aduba's character as well, saying "there's no façade...there's nothing fake about her."

Looks like us fans have a lot to look forward to! Are you excited? Let us know!
