There's a lot to look forward to in Season 3 of "Orange Is the New Black," like the new character played by Ruby Rose, Alex's return as teased in the trailer and finally learning Vee's fate. But now there's one more thing you can expect to see in the upcoming season: Martha Stewart (sort of).

Series creator Jenji Kohan told Time at Monday's Time 100 Gala that the new season of "OITNB" will feature a Stewart-inspired character. She wouldn't say who would be playing the character, but only that she'll be Southern on the show.

The choice to include a Stewart-like inmate makes sense when considering the source material. In Piper Kerman's titular memoir that inspired the Netflix series, the author mentioned how Stewart was originally almost sent to Danbury, the real-life prison that inspired the show's Litchfield prison, following her insider-trading scandal. The lifestyle guru ended up going to a prison in West Virginia instead. Stewart, however, told Time she has not yet watched the Netflix show.

Regardless, we can't wait to meet the "OITNB" version of M. Diddy.
