Orange Is The New Black casting: Season 3 to feature more Alex, possibly less Larry
Jason Biggs says many characters' futures are "very unclear"
Orange Is The New Black's Laura Prepon has confirmed she will be back full time as Alex Vause in season 3, while the future of Piper's other ex, Larry, is "very unclear".
I've always felt that Larry's scenes outside of prison are a welcome change of pace in the show and serve to show just how tough life in Litchfield is as he struggles to find a good latte, but there's a core of Larry haters out there it seems who will no doubt be delighted by this news.
"It’s very unclear at this point, even for me" if Larry will be a part of season 3, Biggs told Entertainment Weekly at an OITNB press day in New York. "I have not shot anything yet, no."
That being said, filming on season 3 has only been underway for a week, so it's still very possible he will feature at some point. Larry and Piper ended things in OITNB season 2 (Picture: Netflix)
Prepon meanwhile was mostly absent in season 2 as she hid from drug dealer Kubra Balik after testifying against him, but will be back 'full time' next year.
The actress said that unlike this season's isolated series opener, next time around "everybody" will be in the premiere episode, including herself.
"All the girls are so close, I feel like I never left," she said. "Or like I was there all of season 2. We all wanted me to be there for more of season 2."
Earlier in the week, it emerged that a whopping 33 members of the OITNB cast appeared in long-running crime series Law & Order at some point.
