Fans, congratulate yourselves: If there is a third season of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black — and it would be crazy if there weren’t one — Laura Prepon will return full-time.
Multiple sources confirm that Prepon will be in four episodes of Season 2, which premieres June 6. After Season 1 filmed, Prepon, who had only a one-season contract, decided she did not want to commit to being a series regular, and opted not to come back. After the show became Netflix’s biggest hit, and the tidal wave of viewer sorrow nearly drowned Prepon, Netflix, and the show’s creator, Jenji Kohan, the plan was rejiggered for Prepon to return for four Season 2 episodes (instead of a mere one), and to leave things open for heavier involvement in the presumed third season. (For more details about the backstory, read our previous story from November.)
That is now official.
Also, she is not going out with Tom Cruise, so stop it with that.
