The news first dropped via star Laura Prepon's Instagram account, where she posted an image of a whiteboard showing "Season 3 Titles" and wrote "It's official!! Season 3!! #oitnb #alexvause #backtothebighouse." While we're pretty sure those titles, which include "Kids: Yum!" and "The Rapiest Pap Smear," are fake, the news appears to be real.
The Hollywood Reporterconfirmed that this post really does mean what we think it means: Orange Is the New Back is officially coming back for a third season. Time to break out the toilet hooch and celebrate!
While this renewal came a bit earlier than expected, it's not a surprise. The show's freshman season garnered a ton of critical acclaim and word-of-mouth buzz, and while Netflix is very hush-hush about exactly how many people watch any of its shows, sources say Orange Is the New Black is its biggest hit.
