Still locked up! Netflix announced on Wednesday, April 15, that more Orange Is the New Black is in the works from the streaming service. 

With two months to go until the third season premiere of OITNB, Netflix broke the news that the drama will be getting a fourth season. Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren, dished to Good Morning America on Wednesday about the exciting news. 

"Excited to chat with @GMA in a few minutes and share some @oitnb news," she tweeted before her appearance. "Tune in! #oitnb #onwednesdaywewearorange." Aduba, who won an Emmy for her role in the show, told GMA that the next season will begin filming in June.

After debuting its first season in July 2013, Orange Is the New Black quickly became a runaway success for Netflix. Now the streaming service's most celebrated original property, the drama about inmates in a women's prison has been nominated for 12 Emmy awards.

Led by show runner Jenji Kohan (Weeds), OITNB is an adaptation of Piper Kerman's memoir of the same name. The story examines the Kerman's time at the Federal Correctional Institution, Danbury, the same prison where Teresa Giudice is currently serving her sentence. 

Watch a preview for the third season below, and catch the fourth season of Orange Is the New Black on Netflix in 2016!
