Laura Prepon Is Leaving ‘Orange Is The New Black’ And I Won’t Miss Her
Orange Is The New Black is all of our collective favorite TV show. This is our story people! Many of us have finished binge-watching the Netflix original series, and if you haven’t, I’m sort of freakishly jealous of you because I want to go back and watch it all again because I loved it that much. I’m totally hoping some of you new mamas who are busy adjusting to life with a newborn are doing just that. But now we have the kinda sad news that Laura Prepon will only stick around long enough to wrap up her storyline on season two.
I like Laura’s character, Alex, and I enjoyed her and Piper’s story but to be honest, I’m more concerned about what will happen with a lot of other characters on the show. From Buzzfeed:
Prepon will come back for a limited number of episodes in the showâ€™s 13-episode second season in order to resolve her story. And the door will be left often for her to return in the future. But the actress did not sign a contract tying her to the show for the upcoming season.
Fans will likely be disappointed not to see a years-long arc play out between Alex and Piper (Taylor Schilling); their troubled past relationship resulted in Piperâ€™s imprisonment, the main plot of the show. And their (sexual) dynamic, given the fraught circumstances, has been one of the first seasonâ€™s most thrilling threads.
Laura I will miss you but as long as Â Kate Mulgrew as Red and Uzo Aduba as Crazy Eyes and Danielle Brooks as Taystee come back I will be okayyyyyyyy! I don’t have super high hopes for Taryn Manning as that amazingly vicious crazyass Pennsatucky lasting long and I will miss her toooooo, because she is the
I would rather they keep Laura on and get rid of Larry. Who needs Larry? I do not.
