Actress Laura Prepon let the cat out of the bag on Monday with an Instagram showing mooted titles for new episodes of the Netflix comedy drama. So binge watch away on the 13 episodes of Season 2, which comes out next month

Fans of Netflix’s hit show Orange is the New Black still have a month to wait for the second series to be released on Netflix. But those who binge through all 13 episodes on the release date of June 6 need not fear, as the network has already confirmed the show will be back for a third season.

Laura Prepon, who plays Alex Vause on the show, took to Instagram Monday to reveal the news, posting a photo of potential titles for the show’s third season.

Netflix later confirmed the news to TIME, but said it would not be releasing a statement.

The announcement comes just after the series took home the GLAAD Media Award for outstanding comedy, an accolade recognizing the show’s representation of diversity and LGBT issues, particularly surrounding the transgender inmate Sophia, played by actor Laverne Cox.
