The New Season of 'Orange Is the New Black' Just Hit the Internet a Day Early

A gift to the world from #OrangeCon.

RED ALERT, OITNB fans: We know you'd cleared your calendar (i.e. planned to conveeeeniently come down with a 100-degree fever just in time for work) to watch all of season three tomorrow, BUT YOU CAN DO IT TONIGHT. RIGHT NOW. THIS SECOND.

At tonight's #OrangeCon event in New York City, moderated by Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider—which is invitation-only but, in a gloriously non-industry twist, is for the most diehard of OITNB fans—Uzo Aduba managed to convince Netflix higher-ups to release the kraken, as it were.

So get watching! What are you waiting for? IT'S HERE, PEOPLE.

Check back soon for our take on episode one and tonight's panel.
