Laura Prepon is leaving 'Orange Is the New Black' next season
The Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black is winning accolades, but one of its leads won't be back for long. Laura Prepon won't be back for much of Season Two, according to BuzzFeed. Piper's going to be lonely without Alex.
BuzzFeed first reported the move, saying Prepon will be back for a handful of episodes to finish her storyline, and may return in the future. The site noted Prepon was not under contract for the entire second season.
Netflix didn't confirm the report, saying only that "our season is still developing and nothing is confirmed," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show was renewed for a second season even before it debuted in June.
