The actress, 33, will no longer be a series regular in Season 2, however she will return to tie up any loose ends in her storyline, according to reports.

There also remains the possibility of a full-time comeback in the future.

"Our season is still developing and nothing is confirmed," a Netflix rep said in a statement regarding the second season, which is currently in production.

Orange is the New Black Season 2 will return in 2014.

It is not clear if Prepon decided to leave or if the show's arc requires her exit. Alex is a love interest of the main character, Piper, played by Taylor Schilling.

The news comes on the heels of a few other big exits this TV offseason, such as Sandra Oh leaving Grey's Anatomy and Cote de Pablo leaving NCIS.
