We were totally shocked when we heard the buzz that Laura Prepon‘s character, Alex Vause, wouldn’t be returning to Orange is the New Black for another season. She plays a major part in the storyline, and we’re so happy that she finally spoke out and confirmed she’d be back!
Laura Prepon Returns To Season 3 Of ‘Orange Is The New Black’
“It sucked because [show creator] Jenji Kohan and I wanted me to be in it more, but with the schedule, it didn’t happen,” Laura told Us Weekly, “I was so bummed out. But I handled it, so I’m in every [episode] in season three. It is so good.”
Yay! If you’re a fan of OITNB, then you know that Laura plays Alex, Piper Chapman’s [Taylor Shilling] drug dealing ex-girlfriend. Her role on the show has been scandalous and at times, very steamy, so fans were shocked to hear that she may not be coming back for another season. They seriously couldn’t have picked a better Alex Vause!
Laura was excited about her role in OITNB from the beginning, stating that it was a new challenge for her and “When I read this script, there were so many rad roles, so when I read Alex I loved her.”

So what exactly was the deal with Laura’s character in season two? Alex Vause only made an appearance in for episodes in this season, and with the shows cult-like following, fans were completely upset that their favorite lesbian inmate wasn’t a regular.
It turns out that there were only scheduling issues and Alex will be back in full force, complicating Piper’s life for Season three.
It looks like there’s a lot more backstabbing and a complicated love stories to look forward to in season three. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for her return?
