Netflix has announced that season 7 of Orange Is The New Black will be the last.
While it’s long been suspected that the cast and crew have been aiming for seven seasons of the series – especially after the show was renewed for seasons 5-7 in one big chunk back in 2016 – but this confirmation has drawn a line under it for good.
In 2013, Orange Is The New Black became a smash for Netflix, one of its first original series to snag both critical acclaim and viewer numbers. The streaming service had had plenty of hits since, but OITNB is often considered the OG.
The show’s stars appeared in an emotional video to call time on the series as the news broke…
“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” creator Jenji Kohan told Deadline. “I will miss all the badass ladies of Litchfield and the incredible crew we’ve worked with. My heart is orange but fade to black.”
We’re expecting the final season to arrive on Netflix in the summer of 2019.
