Laura Prepon Will Be Back For 'Orange Is The New Black' Season 2

Posted: Updated:

Laura Prepon better get used to that prison food.

While speaking with Us Weekly, "Orange is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan revealed that Prepon will be returning for Season 2 of the Netflix series.

"Yes, yes, she is coming back. Not the whole season, but ... you'll see her for most of it," Kohan told the magazine at this past weekend's Writers Guild Awards.

This is good news for fans who were worried that Prepon, who plays Piper's (Taylor Schilling) ex-girlfriend, would only return for one episode in the upcoming second season. This is the first confirmation on Prepon's return since last fall when Buzzfeed reported that she would return for four episodes.

Kohan also told TV Guide that the new season would not just focus on Piper's storyline. "It's becoming much more of an ensemble," said Kohan. "As much as I love Piper and Taylor and her journey, I think people are interested in everybody's journey."

No matter how many episodes Prepon appears on, it looks like she had a blast at the Season 2 roller skating wrap party.

No word yet on when the new season will debut.
