Netflix confirmed the news.

The greenlight comes as the streaming service continues to beef up its original series repertoire. Similarly, Netflix announced that “House of Cards” would be renewed for a third season before the second season came out.

The comedy-drama was created by Jenji Kohan and is based on the Piper Kerman memoir “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.” Netflix released a trailer for season two last month.

Season two will premiere on June 6 on Netflix.
