Alex Vause will be rocking her Litchfield jumpsuit for a bit longer.

After weeks of reports claiming Laura Prepon will have a very limited role in “Orange is the New Black” Season 2, the actress has stated she will be a part of it.

“It’s an amazing show, and my character is a total badass,” Laura told Us Weekly on Friday.

While the former “That ‘70s Show” star didn’t give a clear answer as to how many more “OITNB” episodes she’ll actually appear in, she did shoot down reports claiming she no longer wanted to play the former drug runner/Piper Chapman’s (Taylor Schilling) ex-girlfriend.

“I don’t want to stop playing her because she is amazing,” she said. “But I’m definitely coming back for Season 2, and it’s going to be awesome.”
