There have been a lot rumors about just how much more of Laura Prepon Orange is the New Black fans will see on the show. Apparently it's not nearly as much of a concern as it was initially made out to be.
The whole thing started last year when BuzzFeed said she was leaving the show, and would be back only to tie up her storyline. Later, they said she'd only be back for a single episode. Later still, they said she'd be back for four episodes.
Now, US Weekly is quoting OITNB creator Jenji Kohan as saying that she'll be back for "most" of the season.
Her role on the show after that is unclear. What would really be the point in even trying to speculate after all this?
We do know (based on words from Kohan both from the USWeekly report and past interviews) that the show is going to be moving away from focusing so much on the Piper and Alex (Taylor Schilling and Prepon) storyline, so it can spread some of the screen time to the rest of the cast.
