The news was announced in a short teaser-trailer for the Netflix comedy-drama at the end of the last episode of the just-released second season of another Netflix series, House of Cards. The video is just 15 seconds long but features shots of fan favorite characters including Red, Pornstache, Crazy Eyes, and leading lady Piper (Taylor Schilling).

Noticeably absent from the clip, however, is Laura Prepon's Alex Vause. Rumors about Prepon's diminished role in the series have been circulating for months, but creator Jenji Kohan told Us Weekly earlier this month that her presence would be felt throughout.

"Yes, yes, she is coming back," Kohan told Us of the former That '70s Show actress. "Not the whole season,'ll see her for most of it."

Kohan also talked to TV Guide about the much-anticipated new episodes of OITNB. "It's becoming much more of an ensemble," she said. "As much as I love Piper and Taylor and her journey, I think people are interested in everybody's journey."
