Yes, the Litchfield ladies – who are set to return to Netflix for series three on Friday 12th June – have already got the go-ahead for season four from the on-demand streaming service after picking up a string of prizes for the comedy-drama’s first two outings, including three Emmy Awards.

Piper, Red, Crazy Eyes, Taystee, Poussey, Sophia, Nicky, Daya, Gloria, Big Boo and Pensatucky will all be back on Netflix later this year, as Alex (Laura Prepon) makes her return and newcomer Stella (Ruby Rose) checks into Litchfield Penetentiary.
