Adorable 'Orange Is the New Black' Set Photos an Update on Laura Prepon's Status in the Show

We don’t know yet when season two of Orange is the New Black will return, but we do know that they’re filming the season now, and that it is likely that the show will return earlier than next summer. We also know that Laura Prepon will only return to close out her character. According to Buzzfeed, they’re going to wrap that storyline up quickly, as Prepon has only signed on to one more episode. How do you wrap it up in one episode? Either a transfer or a release, I would guess. The release would be a surprise, since there was no indication she was getting out soon. I doubt, either, that they will kill the character off, as I’m assuming they’ll want to leave the door open for her return, in case this is simply a negotiation tactic by Laura Prepon, who only signed on to one season, and apparently, is not quick to sign on to another. Why, when it’s the only high profile role Prepon has had since The 70’s Show? Beats me.

Meanwhile, we don’t have much information about season two, other than that there will be new female characters, and a quote from Taylor Schilling: “All of the characters and all of the dynamics are just going deeper. It’s just getting fuller and richer and to me, more compelling.”

How wonderfully vague.

We do, however, have adorable on-set photos from the Orange is the New Black Instagram account.

    "Why, when it’s the only high profile role Prepon has had since The 70’s Show?"

    How quickly we forget that she was the title character in a failed sitcom on NBC. That's pretty high profile. You know, headlining a sitcom that was pimped to the heavens for month and catastrophically fell to the earth like a band Angry Birds knock-off game.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    So, will she just take the wrap for beating up Meth Teeth (or whatever Manning's character is called)?
    I'm sorry to see Alex go. I know the real Piper loves Larry and all that, but seriously, Jason Bigg's scenes are the only lull in an otherwise great show. Couldn't he leave?

  • Aaron Schulz

    ooo there ya go, she could say she beat pennsatuckey, or that the screwdriver was hers and stolen by her

  • SackBlabbath

    Don't forget that Prepon played Karla Homolka in a 2006 tele-film. Must've been pretty desperate to take on *that* particular role.

  • IngridToday

    Can her character beat up/stab Bennett? Something needs to happen to Bennett for a sleeping with an inmate (illegal, unprofessional, and an obvious abuse of power I don't care if he 'loves' a girl he barely knows).

  • Aaron Schulz

    yeah hes a likable guy, but still a douche, i do hope he shoots cesar first though

  • Skyler Durden

    Tastee! Suzanne! Poussey! Big Boo!

    I feel like I am looking at pictures of my friends. :-)

    /I need to make some actual friends.

  • lowercase_ryan

    It's like looking at photo's from a vacation all of your friends took without you.

    wow, that's kind of sad.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Presumable this has more to do with the Scientologists not liking her role in the show than her not liking working again.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Or, you know, read the book.

  • TheAggroCraig

    Read? What do I look like, a NERD?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Nah. There's always a conspiracy somewhere.

  • Fredo

    But I thought that Scientologists loved to trumpet the successes of their members. Why would they want her to not be employed? It's not like they're helping her find a working gig with Tom Cruise or anything.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    because their beloved leader decided that is at best an illness and at worst a sexual perversion - and what's her character in the show?

  • prince_of_montagu

    Whoa, never thought of that but that makes total sense.

  • Ruthie O

    This summer, I was crazy busy. Teaching a ton, moving across the country, starting a PhD program. I only just got to start and finish OITNB within these past two weeks. I watched the last episode last night. So, I know this reaction on the season finale is super delayed, but here we go:

    OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. First the warm fuzzies, the Amazing Grace, and then the WTF OMGGGGGGGGGG. THAT HAPPENED. I mean, it was expected but shocking at the same time. That, my friends, is good storytelling. My jaw is still dropped this morning.

    Once again, sorry for the delay. But I really had to articulate that somewhere. And yes, the instagram account is adorable. I follow Laverne Cox on Twitter, and she posts some great pics too.

  • TheFatling

    Pennsatucky is the cowbell of OINTB. Well, actually, it's a tie between her, Suzanne, and Poussey.

  • Ruthie O

    I've never heard of "the cowbell" being used as a compliment for people. I get it. I love it. And it is now part of my lexicon.

  • Mrs. Julien

    You should at least offer best wishes to Ruthie O on starting her Ph.D. before launching into the sales pitch. Did you learn nothing from the training session?
