According to Netlfix, the addictive jailhouse drama will return for a highly-anticipated second season in 16 weeks. The series will continue where is left off, chronicling the life of privileged New Yorker Piper Chapman as she serves a 15-month prison sentence for her part in a drug-smuggling operation.

The show, based on Piper Kerman’s real-life story, features a handful of African-American actresses, including Danielle Brooks (Taystee), Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes), Samira Wiley (Poussey) and transgenderadvocate Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset).
