This comes as a huge shock- a huge, unexpected shock! Laura Prepon is leaving Netflix's hit series, Orange Is The New Black. According to reports, Laura didn't sign a contract to renew her services on the show for the second season. Buzzfeed reported that Prepon will come back for a limited number of episodes in the show’s 13-episode second season in order to wrap up Alex Vause's storyline. There's a chance that she could come back for a few episodes. That door is still open.
This is really sad for the show, especially since Laura is excellent as Alex Vause and Taylor Schilling's Piper's story line kinder does revolve around her relationship with Alex. Yes they may have *SPOILER* at the end of the first season, but they are not really finished.
The show has been making interesting changes cast wise. Popular characters like Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), Taystee (Daniele Brooks) and Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) have been upgraded to series regulars for next season.
The show is currently shooting it's second episode in New York.
