At the not-sociable-for-the-West Coast hour of 5:45 a.m. on Wednesday (April 15), Netflix made what surely wasn't a taxing announcement... "Orange Is The New Black" has been renewed for a fourth season. 

Duh. But also... Yay!

The third season of "Orange Is The New Black" is set to debut on Netflix on Friday, June 12.

The newly ordered (but previously a foregone conclusion) fourth season will premiere on Netflix in 2016.

Netflix also dropped a new Season 3 First Look on Wednesday. Check it out:

The second season of "Orange Is The New Black" will be eligible for Emmys this fall, but it will be eligible in the drama categories after submitting as comedy last year. I already ranted about that for a while.

But... Yay for Season 4 of "Orange Is The New Black."
