Based on the popular memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, the show is set to debut its first 13-episode season July 11 in all territories where Netflix is available.

The show from creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan will then return for a second season on Netflix in 2014.

"Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal series and we're eager to get a second season to our viewers," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said in a statement.

"I am thrilled that Netflix has extended my sentence," Kohan said.

"We're enormously proud of the brilliant work of Jenji, the cast and the entire production team," said Kevin Beggs, president of Lionsgate Television Group, "and we're delighted about this early second season renewal. Netflix has been a great partner on this series and we look forward to our continuing collaboration."

"Orange is the New Black" follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman, whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex -- played by Laura Prepon -- results in her arrest and 15-month-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiance Larry -- played by Jason Biggs -- for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates, a synopsis said.

The series co-stars Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.
