According to Buzzfeed and The Hollywood Reporter,
Laura Prepon - who plays Alex Vause on the prison comedy/drama - will
not return as a series regular in Season 2, but will appear in a limited
number of episodes to wrap up her storyline.
THR and Buzzfeed both reported that the possibility of her return could happen later in the show.
