Fans of Alex Vause (Laura Prepon), rejoice! After reports that the former That ‘70s Show star would only be returning to Orange Is the New Black for one episode in Season 2, Buzzfeed now says she’ll actually be behind bars for four episodes!
Buzzfeed cites sources close to the show who claim that Laura is going to be in four episodes of the 13-episode second season. This is wonderful news for those shipping Alex and Piper (Taylor Schilling). While the two might not get a full-fledged love connection in Season 2, we suspect that the two ladies will at least share some screentime.
Laura’s currently negotiating her Season 3 status, which will hopefully lead to her becoming a series regular again. When she came onto the project at the beginning, she didn’t have a contract beyond the premiere season. With a desire to direct her first movie, she decided that committing full-time in Season 2 wasn’t the best idea, which is why we’re freaking out about her future on the show.
With the wild success that the Netflix series has found — and the warm welcome Laura’s performance received — it’s no surprise that the seasoned actress wants to don that orange jumpsuit and pitch-black hair once more.
All we want is our favorite mostly all-female cast to keep this show going for years and years. In fact, we’ll take a life sentence, please!
