'Orange Is The New Black' To End After Season 7

'Orange Is The New Black' To End After Season 7

Popular Netflix series Orange is the New Black will come to an end after Season 7.

The news was announced via Twitter, in a poignant video that featured messages from the cast - who warned fans: "This will make you cry."

Taking it in turns to speak, the cast said: "We've got some news... The final season is coming."

They then individually recounted what it had meant to work on the show, with Uzo Aduba (Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren) saying: "I'm so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together."

She added: "Season 7, you will not be disappointed. It is a season you will not forget, and we're going to give you everything and more that you have ever wanted."

Laura Prepon also said that their 'relationships will continue' after the show, while Taylor Schilling thanked fans for all their support.

An end card stated that the seventh and final season would air on Netflix in 2019.

Many fans commented to say how gutted they were to hear the news.



Others took the opportunity to thank cast and crew for the ride, with one writing: "The past six years it's all I've known, I'm so glad I had this show in my life! Let's go out on top!"

Another person wrote: "So so thankful for the insanely talented and empowering women who make up this ensemble. Always will love and appreciate this show."

Based on the book of the same name by Piper Kerman, the critically-acclaimed show is one of Netflix's longest-running and most popular series. It's also been the winner of countless awards, as well as multiple Emmy nominations.

The fifth series was underwhelming for many fans, with co-producer Tara Herrmann attributing the mixed reaction to a writer's room shakeup after the show lost many of its original writers.

However, creators were able to claw back its popularity with the sixth, which proved much more of a hit.

"After seven seasons, it's time to be released from prison," showrunner Jenji Kohan said.

"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."
