Netflix has green-lit a third season of their original series, Orange Is The New Black. 

While Netflix gave yet to publicly confirm the news actress Laura Prepon, who plays inmate Alex Vause, revealed the news on her Instagram account. 

A source close to the production also revealed to the Los Angeles Times that work had already started on the third series. 

Other Netflix originals, Hemlock Grove, Lilyhammer and House of Cards, are all set to return over the next couple of years.
