You can breathe easy, “Orange Is the New Black” fans, as Netflix has renewed the fan favorite series ahead of its sophomore debut.

TVLine reports that the series will return, with star Laura Prepon writing, “It’s official!! Season 3!!” alongside a photo of potential (and slightly NSFW) titles for season 3 episodes.

While the breakout success of “Orange” suggested a third season renewal would come at some point, Prepon’s own status was very much up in the air at one point.

BuzzFeed reports that the former “That ‘70s Show” actress will appear in just four season 2 episodes, but she will return fulltime for the third batch.

The show, which stars Taylor Schilling as artisanal soap maker-turned-prison inmate Piper Chapman, will unfurl its 13-episode second season on June 6.

Creator Jenji Kohan (“Weeds”) confirmed that season 2 would focus less on Chapman’s journey and more on the incredible ensemble.
