Orange Is the New Black: Jason Biggs Not Returning for Season 3

Jason Biggs Orange Is the New Black

Orange Is the New Black has shortened Jason Biggs‘ sentence.

The actor, who portrays Piper’s (Taylor Schilling) ex-fiancee, Larry Bloom, on the Netflix series, will not return for Season 3.

Our sister site Variety confirmed Biggs’ departure, which was first reported by the New York Daily News.

“They’re not focusing on Larry at the moment,” Biggs told the Daily News. “Larry will not be in Season 3. But there’s always a possibility he can come back.”

Last viewers saw Larry, he and Piper had broken off their engagement and he’d begun a relationship with Piper’s best friend, Polly.

Orange Is the New Black‘s third season will debut on Netflix this summer.

    YAAAAAAS.

    Makes sense, his character ran his course, Polly too. Their relationship felt like their send off.

      I agree with you 100%. Pairing him with Polly and having them move on is a nice move. I wonder if we won’t see Polly either. We know from reality that she eventually marries Larry, but maybe they’ll make TV Piper deviate from the book/reality some more. I like thinking that TV Piper could end up with Alex one day.

      • A fan of TV says:

        Well, Polly and Piper still (in theory) have their soap business together, so there may still be some loose ends to tie up there…

    Narratively this makes sense the way they left Season Two. Besides, I kinda liked Larry and Polly together. They deserved each other in their own self-centered way.

  4. eddie says:

    didn’t Biggs get booted from his voice role on TMNT a couple months ago too? hmmm I wonder if he’s making these decisions?

  5. fringe30 says:

    Best news ever. I fast forward every scene he was in since the beginning.

  6. David4 says:

    The second season was better than the first because of less of him, so I welcomes a season free of him.

  7. webly3 says:

    Well in real life Piper and Larry were still together after she got out of prison… so I’m not sure what’s going to happen with Piper now.

  8. Olivia says:

    He doesn’t serve any purpose anyway.

  9. Wee says:

    I am completely fine with this news. Of all the guys I think I liked him the least.

  10. Ray says:

    Yess!! Great news. Biggs’ performance did nothing but bring the show down.

  11. asm says:

    Jason Biggs is awful isn’t he? I watched the cast interviews and almost all of the other casts seemed uncomfortable with him, especially the actress that plays piper. He’s also kinda rude in twitter. Might be that’s the reason.

  12. Bradster says:

    he should take over for Rosie O on the View. He was awesome on there

  13. sunflower says:

    Can someone explain? Is this show based on a book?

  14. JustLookAtTheFlowers says:

    Good. I never liked the actor or the character. More Taystee, Pousse, & Crazy Eyes please

  15. Ricki says:

    Good. I dont care for the whole Larry and Polly situation. Once Piper gets out she should get out of business with her shady bf and find some business of her own.
