Orange Is the New Black favorite Samira Wiley is reuniting with Stephen Falk.

The actress, who is at the center of one of the biggest twists of Orange Is the New Black season four, has booked a major role on FXX critical darling You're the Worst.

Wiley will recur in season three of the comedy, created by Orange alum Falk, and play Justina, the therapist to star Aya Cash's Gretchen. The character will be featured prominently throughout the season as Justina helps Gretchen dip her toe into the waters of mental health, both in recovering from her recent depressive episode and dealing with new challenges. Justina has the unique ability to cut through Gretchen's layers of crap and remain (mostly) unflappable, even when Gretchen is at her worst. Though she's a great therapist, Justina isn't exactly a paradigm of mental health — she's very much trying to figure out her own life, including what to do about her unambitious boyfriend and thirsty need to Foursquare her every move.

"Samira is an incredibly talented, thoughtful and exciting actress. When I worked on Orange Is the New Black I got to write the episode with Poussey’s backstory, and we had such a good time that early on in writing this season of You’re the Worst I hit on the random thought of having Samira play Gretchen’s therapist," Falk told THR. "It seemed like kind of a weird choice, given that she’s younger, and on another show, but once it came to mind, the idea of casting anyone else bummed me out. So I didn’t."

For Wiley, who will appear in five episodes, the role marks her follow-up gig following four seasons of Orange.
