LOS ANGELES — Netflix has extended the sentence of “Orange Is the New Black” to a third season.

Ahead of its second season rollout, which gets unleashed to the public June 6 on the streaming site, came word — or a photo, rather — of the renewal. Laura Prepon, who plays inmate Alex Vause, a thorny ex of Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman, in the prison dramedy, let the cat out of the bag on her Instagram account. Prepon’s role was reduced for Season 2, though if her hashtags are any indication, she’ll be returning for the third cycle.

Netflix has not officially announced a renewal, but a source close to production confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that work on a third season has begun.

It’s not the first time Netflix has given an early renewal to one of its programs. In fact, the Jenji Kohan series, based on the memoir from Piper Kerman, received a second-season renewal ahead of its first season debut last year.

Meanwhile, the critical darling awaits its Emmys fate. Netflix submitted the one-hour dramedy for consideration as a comedy.
