With the second season of Netflix’s critically acclaimed drama Orange is the New Black set to be released en masse on June 6, Buzzfeed reports that Laura Prepon will return as a regular cast member in season three. Prepon, who plays Piper Chapman’s ex-girlfriend Alex Vause, took a major step back in season two. She was originally slated to appear in just one episode, but will now appear in four. Whatever hesitation caused her to reduce her involvement has apparently been annihilated by the universal love for both the show and Prepon’s character, though, and she’ll be back in full force next season.
This, of course, is contingent on OITNB actually getting a third season from Netflix, which isn’t official yet. But I’m going to go way out on a limb here and say that the head honchos at ‘Flix will probably renew their most popular show of all time.
