Orange Is the New Black is dropping its third season on Netflix on June 12. By now it's a summer tradition, binge-watching the harrowing, enlivening, perfectly cast series about a women's prison and the foibles, failures and fun times within. 

And now, two months before the premiere, the streaming service that seems to love and support all its original programming with unmatchable ferocity has renewed the Jenji Kohan series for a fourth season. (That's an upgrade from 2014's one-month-early renewal.) Taystee 2016, people.

Orange Is the New Black has won three Emmys so far, a number that'll probably increase after season three. A few things you might want to know about the 14 new episodes barreling at us: Jason Biggs' Larry is gone, Alex (That '70s Show's Laura Prepon) is back in a big way and Mary Steenburgen (Elf, Joan of Arcadia, Curb Your Enthusiasm) will show up as Pornstache's mom.

If your overheated self can withstand any more excitement, here's the so-sharp-it'll-slice-your-computer-in-half trailer for season three:
