A&E announced today that Born This Way has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes ahead of the docu-series' second-season finale this Tuesday, and two weeks after the show scored its first Emmy Award win in the Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program category.

Born This Way premiered in 2015 and follows several men and women who were born with Down syndrome. Cameras follow them in their daily lives as they work to overcome obstacles while pursuing friendships, relationships, and lifelong goals.

The cable network has ordered 10 new episodes for Season 3, matching its second-season order.
