Everyone's favorite criminal is back, sort of.

Laura Prepon has plans to don those oversized spectacles and sport her prison garb once again in "Orange Is the New Black" if the show gets a third season -- and, honestly, why wouldn't it? Prepon, whose contract ended after the show's first season wrapped, will reprise her role as drug smuggling lesbian and Piper's on-again, off-again love interest Alex Vause full-time for Season 3.

To the extreme disappointment of "OITNB" fans everywhere, Prepon announced her plans to leave the show after Season 1 aired. The outcry was so loud that show creator Jenji Kohan worked with Prepon on her return arc for Season 2. Instead of the planned single episode appearance which was intended to tie up any loose ends for her character, Prepon will now be in most of the second season -- four more episodes, to be exact.

Season 2 of "Orange Is the New Black" premieres June 6 on Netflix.
