It's a go! OITNB picked up for Season 3

Kristyn Burtt is an LA-based entertainment reporter who has covered everything from 'Dancing With the Stars' to the Oscars. If she’s not on the red carpet, she’s at home in yoga pants watching Netflix and eating potato chips.

Season 2 hasn't even premiered yet, but Netflix has enough faith in its original series that it has already renewed it for Season 3. Orange is the New Black will premiere June 6 for its second season, but fans are thrilled that a third season is on the way.

On Monday, it was star Laura Prepon who broke the news on her Instagram account. She posted a picture with possible Season 3 titles on a wipe board. She captioned the photo, "It's official!! Season 3!! #oitnb #alexvause #backtothebighouse"

Some of the titles included some suggestive words like "Use your tears a lube," "The rapiest Pap smear," and "I'm a b***h because I'm sad."

Prepon also shared a Lego version of the characters from the hit online series.

The show is based on the book, Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, by Piper Kerman, who wrote the memoir about her own real-life experiences behind bars.

At the PaleyFest in Hollywood back in March, the cast warned SheKnows that things were going to take a darker turn for the female prisoners. In fact, Yael Stone, who plays Moreno, described Season 2 as "scarier" than the premiere season.

While viewers won't know what that means until they begin binge-watching on June 6, they do know they are in for a lot more OITNB.
