Remember when Martha Stewart went to prison? Because Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan does.

Kohan recently told Time that when the show returns for its third season, it will introduce a character inspired by Stewart. For fans of the book, this news won’t come as much of a surprise, considering that, in the book, Piper Kerman wrote about how Stewart was nearly sent to Danbury—a.k.a. the real prison that Litchfield is based on.

Kohan also revealed that the Stewart-esque character will be Southern, but that’s about all we know.

Orange Is the New Black returns to Netflix for its third season on June 12.
