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.
"But I love the show and I love my character, and I told Jenji from the get-go, 'I want to be in as many as I can.' So we did, and I'll be in four episodes for 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."
