Attention Orange is the New Black fans: The Ladies of Litchfield are back for a brand-new season.

“The beauty of this show is how we straddle the line between comedy and drama,” Taylor Schilling, who stars as Piper Chapman on the prison-based series, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a true ensemble. In season two, we’ll see how Piper’s story continues, but the show also gets wider and deeper to tell the stories of even more of the women.”

In addition to Schilling, other fan favorites – including new dad Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew and Taryn Manning – will return, while newcomer Lorraine Toussaint joins the cast as inmate Yvonne “Vee” Parker.

Netflix’s smash show returns June 6 and promises a deeper look at the darkly funny prisoners. Until then, enjoy this exclusive first look at the upcoming season.
