The cast of Orange Is the New Black is one of the best in the business and it seems like everyone who comes aboard the Netflix series really fits in. Imagine our surprise when news broke that one of the standout guest actresses from Season 2 would be returning in Season 3. Who’s coming back? Read on to find out!


According to Entertainment Weekly, Lori Petty is heading back into the slammer! The League of Their Own star will be reprising the memorable role of Lolly from the Season 2 premiere. Remember Lolly? Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) met Lolly on the transport plane when she was being transferred to a prison in Chicago.

The Powers That Be are staying mum on Lori’s return, declining to comment and reveal any details about what brings Lolly back into the fold. Perhaps she’ll be transferred to Litchfield and will add some drama to the intricate relationships and alliances. Either way, we’re glad to see this actress bringing her talents back to everyone’s favorite series to binge-watch.

Lori’s return comes on the heels of Mike Birbiglia, Blair Brown, and Mary Steenburgen booking guest spots next season. There might be “bloodshed” coming up, but there are also some pretty freaking awesome thespians coming aboard!
