It looks like the ladies at Litchfield Penitentiary are in for an extended sentence.

Netflix announced on Friday morning that it has renewed its Emmy-winning prison drama Orange Is the New Black for three additional seasons, extending its run through at least Season 7.

“Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both funny and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “Audiences around the world have come to love the ladies and men of Orange is the New Black, and we are eager to see where three more seasons will take them.” 

The hour-long series, which boasts an ensemble including Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Kate Mulgrew and Laura Prepon, returns for Season 4 on Friday, June 17.
