Someone’s not returning to “Orange is the New Black” this upcoming season (Season 3).

Jason Biggs, whom we have seen since the first season of “OITNB” has confirmed that he’s not coming back this season. He plays the role of Larry Bloom, Piper’s ex-fiance.

According to Biggs, “They’re not focusing on Larry at the moment. Larry will not be in season three. But there’s always a possibility he can come back,” he said.

With that being said, we’re not totally closing our doors, we still want to see Larry on “OITNB!” There’s a huge possibility that we will still get to see him, maybe in the next season?

Aside from that, rumors are floating around that the reason that he’s not coming back was because of “his greed.” Apparently, Biggs was said to be “fired” from the show with “money was the main reason.” A rep for Biggs has confirmed that this isn’t true.

Some fans are really disappointed with this news while others show that they are least affected by Biggs’ character out of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 3. Fans share their thoughts on this: some say that Larry’s character during the first episode was the perfect blend for Piper’s life back then until things turned around and they saw who the real Larry is. Some say that they are more relieved than upset that Biggs’ character is not coming back due to the fact that he made Piper’s life in prison a living hell and even went behind her back to form a relationship with Piper’s best friend, Polly (Maria Dizzia).

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Larry should come back or are you happy that he’s gone? Let us know by posting your comments below!
