There's no stopping "Orange Is the New Black."

The second season of the wildly popular women's prison drama hasn't even premiered yet, and Netflix has already announced that it'll renew the show for a third season.

The show's writers broke the great news by tweeting a photo of a white board with a list of supposed Season 3 episodes and the caption, "We're back. #OITNB #season3." 

Actress Laura Prepon, who plays Alex Vause in the show, also posted a picture of the white board on Instagram with the caption, "It's official!! Season 3!! #oitnb #alexvause #backtothebighouse." 

Based on "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison," Netflix's show follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schiling) after she's sent to prison on money laundering and drug trafficking charges.
