Orange is the New Black's seventh season to be its last

  • 18/10/2018

Netflix's award-winning women's prison drama Orange is the New Black will come to an end with its seventh season.

The show has charted the journeys of several women through Litchfield correctional facilities, landing an Emmy, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globe nominations since it debuted in July, 2013.

"After seven seasons, it's time to be released from prison," said series creator Jenji Cohan in a statement.

"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."

Members of the cast got together for a farewell video released on the official Orange is the New Black Twitter account with a caption reading, "warning: this may make you cry".

"I'm going to miss playing and living on the edge of one of the most ground-breaking, original and controversial series of this decade," said Kate Mulgrew (Red).

"I'm so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together," said Uzo Aduba (Suzanne).

"[With] season seven you will not be disappointed. It is a season you will not forget. We're going to give you everything and more that you could have ever wanted."

The seventh and final season of Orange is the New Black will be released in 2019.
