Actress Laura Prepon, who plays one of the main characters on "Orange is the New Black," the Netflix original series set in a women's prison, is leaving the show.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news. Though the 33-year-old is departing as a regular, she will return for the second season to close out her storyline.

"Our season is still developing and nothing is confirmed," a Netflix representative said in a statement. "Season 2 of the series is currently in production."

It wasn't known whether Prepon opted to leave or if her storyline dictated the move. Alex. Prepon's character, is a love interest of the main character, Taylor Schilling's Piper.

The show began filming the second season last month. The next chapter is due out sometime in 2014.

Beyond "Orange is the New Black," Prepon is best known for her role as Donna Pinciotti for all eight seasons of the Fox comedy, "That '70s Show." She played Hannah Daniels on the ABC drama "October Road," and has voiced characters in animated shows like "American Dad!" and "King of the Hill."
