“Orange Is the New Black” fans were stunned this summer by news that star Laura Prepon wouldn’t be returning for Season 2 but for a brief appearance to wrap up her central storyline. However, it appears that may no longer be the case.
Prepon recently spoke with ETOnline.com, telling them, “Scheduling is kind of … intense but I’m definitely coming back for the second season. I love the show and my character’s a bada** … [Taylor Schilling] is amazing and Jenji Kohan, I love her. All my girls, I miss all them so much and I’m definitely going back.”
It had initially been reported that Prepon hadn’t extended her contract for the second season and, thus, was only returning for one or two episodes to give resolution for Alex, her character.
Production on Season 2 is already underway in New York, though Netflix has yet to reveal when it will be released.
Are you hopeful that Prepon will remain a major part of “Orange Is the New Black” in Season 2?
