If you've been pining for new episodes of the Netflix original series 'Orange Is The New Black,' we've got good news for you: a release date has been officially set for Season Three! The pic above was posted to Instagram yesterday by Uzo Aduba. It's a pretty small pic, but a major announcement: Season Three will be available Friday, June 12, 2015!

Season Three contains some pretty major shakeups; there are new cast members like Mary Steenbergen (who is set to play Mendez' mom) and Australian actress Ruby Rose (she'll be playing a newbie who catches the attention of both Piper and Alex). Laura Prepon's Alex is slated to return as a full-time character (hallelujah!) and, perhaps best of all, Jason Biggs is GONE.

That's right: no Larry in Season Three! Are you hyped for a new season of OITNB? Which characters are your faves? How many days until June 12?
