United States prison dramedy Orange is the New Black will end after its 7th season. Along with House of Cards, which will be wrapping up its run in November, the two shows put Netflix on the map for its prestige TV offerings. We will be sad to say goodbye but we will definitely be going out on a high. Spoilers ahead: After six seasons inside the Litchfield Penitentiary, the Season 6 finale saw Piper freed from prison on early release, leaving Season 7 to follow her life on the outside for the first time since Season 1. "Let's go out on top!"
"Jenji and her team have produced a phenomenal and impactful series that is both amusing and dramatic, outrageous and heartfelt".
Netflix has canceled the prison dramedy from Jenji Kohan, making the upcoming seventh season the series' swan song, the streaming service announced Wednesday.
"Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things". "And we're going to give you everything and more than you could have ever wanted".
Now we can confirm that the series is indeed ending. The series was created by Kohan and based on the book of the same name by Piper Kerman.
While some of the show's seasons have proven more divisive than others, "Orange is the New Black" has been on the receiving end of consistent critical praise over the years, most of which usually focuses on highlighting the strong performances of its cast.
Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Danielle Brooks, Taryn Manning, Uzo Aduba, Adrienne C. Moore, Kate Mulgrew, Dascha Polanco, Natasha Lyonne, Yael Stone and Selenis Leyva all shared messages with the show's fans in the minute-long clip.
