Laura Prepon Becomes an Episode Director When ‘Orange is the New Black’ Season 5 Returns In 2017!


Laura Prepon is set to return on "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 both on screen and off screen as she directs one of the episodes of the new season.

Previously, rumors are rife that the show will be cancelled due to the last season's fluctuated ratings; however, other news suggest that the next installment of the series is in fact underway and is expected to return next year.

In that case, many spoilers suggest that "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 will be more dramatic and exciting. Accordingly, Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson (Danielle Brooks) will avenge the death of her bestfriend, Poussey Washington. She is expected to get her revenge done at whatever cost.

Meanwhile, Prepon, who is widely known as Alex Vause in the series, is confirmed to direct an episode in "Orange is the New Black" Season 5, although no reports yet as to what episode she will be directing. Since many anticipated her performance behind the camera, reports say that Prepon is both excited and nervous about her new part in the series. She is widely known for movies such as "The Girl on the Rain" and "that 70's Show."

In other news, Taylor Schilling hinted in one of her interviews with POPSUGAR that she will only be a part of the series until "Orange is the New Black" Season 5. Many speculate that her statements foreshadow the death of her character, Piper Chapman, in the upcoming season.

Many also anticipate on whether or not Officer Bennet's plan to save Daya will be too late. It can be remembered that the last episode of Season 4 had Daya pointing a gun to the Correctional Officer and ready to pull the trigger.

Fans are also waiting for spoilers as to what will happen to Lolly. In the last episode, Lolly was brought to the psych ward. This was after she blabbered that she helped Alex bury the body of a hitman. It is still unknown whether she will be returning to "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 or not.

Furthermore, the series has confirmed the return of familiar faces including Michael Harney (Sam Healy), Uzo Aduba (Suzanne Warren), Danielle Brooks (Taystee Jefferson) and Kate Mulgrew (Galina Reznikov).

No confirmed "Orange is the New Black" Season 5 release date has been announced yet, but fans expects that the series will return in June 2017.
