When Orange is the New Black returns, viewers will be seeing even more of Poussey Washington, played by Samira Wiley.

For the prison dramedy’s third season, Wiley will be promoted to series regular, EW has confirmed. Wiley has appeared on nearly every episode of the show so far — and fan-favorite Poussey has had an expanded role in season 2.

This means viewers will get more of Taystee and Poussey together, right?

Deadline first reported the news of Wiley’s promotion.
