Biggs told the New York’s Daily News that the show does not focus on Larry in season three, but there is always a chance that he could come back.

The former American Pie star has appeared in the hit series since its debut in 2013. At the end of season two, Biggs’ character had an affair with his incarcerated fiancee Piper’s best friend Polly Harper (Maria Dizzia), putting an end to Larry and Piper’s engagement.

Biggs won’t be idle for too long though, he is currently in rehearsals to star in the Broadway production of The Heidi Chronicles, alongside Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss.

Orange Is the New Black is set to premiere on June 3 on Netflix.
