The actress is set to return as series regular for Season 3.
The actress had revealed to The Daily Beast that she did not sign-up for Season 2 as a series regular. Also, she had not signed any contract, because of which "scheduling conflict" came-up during Season 2.

Prepon had said to The Daily Beast that she wants to be in every episode of "Orange is the New Black" Season 3. She had said: "And then if we get a Season 3, I'll be in every episode. I totally missed the show. It sucks, but there's only one of me, and there's only so much time in the day. We did what we could, and if there's a Season 3, I worked it out so that wouldn't be an issue anymore."
