Actress Laura Prepon is confirmed to be back on the Netflix original "Orange is the New Black" for Season 3 as a full-time cast member.
During "Orange is the New Black" Season 1, Prepon was only signed to a one-year contract. She made it clear that she did not want to be tied to the entire series. However, according to Buzzfeed, "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."
Therefore, we can confidently say that we haven't seen the last of drug-dealing badass Alex Vause.
Season 2 will premiere June 6 on Netflix.
