Get comfy, inmates, because Orange is the New Black hasn’t just renewed its sentence for Season 3 — it’s already being served!
We got word exactly a month ago that the Netflix show, which debuts its sophomore season tomorrow (!!!), had been reupped for another round of in-fighting and laundry room sexy time. At the time, star Laura Prepon casually Instagrammed a pic of a whiteboard showing off some Season 3 secrets, with hashtags announcing they’d be back to the big house real soon.
This time, we’re getting our news directly from said “big house,” as the official OITNB Twitter handle gave us an eve-of thrill with its newest announcement. “On the eve of Orange Is The New Black Season 2, the cast are hard at work back on the set of #OITNB Season 3. How freaking cool is that?” some poor intern the powers that be write.
We’d be committing perjury if we said that wasn’t the coolest news we’ve heard in a life sentence, but seriously Netflix? Can’t these girls get a little yard time before you toss them back into their not-so-fashionable costumes and send ‘em back to work stamping license plates? Er, acting…
While we were crossing our fingers that Jenji Kohan’s dark comedy getting an early start on filming means Season 3 will come to us sooner, we’re not betting our commissary on it.
