The acclaimed dramedy will say good-bye in 2019.
October 17, 2018
Netflix confirmed today that Orange Is The New Black will conclude its run at the end of its already-announced seventh season. The news was posted on the show's official social media accounts with a minute-long message from cast members, who were clearly emotional about the end of their journey.
The prison dramedy premiered in 2013 as one of Netflix's first in-house series and wasted no time in putting the streaming service on the map as a destination for high-quality original content. The series has since gone on to garner numerous awards over the course of its run, with consistently-strong critical praise.
The show was last renewed in early 2016, when it was picked up for three additional seasons ahead of Season 4. Look for the seventh and final season of Orange Is The New Black in the summer of 2019.

I Thought this was one of the better seasons. A lot of powershifts an unknown reasons behind a lot of behaviors. “Fantasy prisoner” was difficult but simple softball prevailed!

Good! I'm glad they're taking this Obama era crap off the air.

I truly love this show and I think it still is great! I will miss it a lot. Thanks for 7 wonderful seasons!

It was pretty clear it was gonna end with the next season since piper was released on the season 6 finale. But still I'm sad that it's ending. Guess I will have to catch up with Wentworth to fill the women's prison drama hole in my heart!

Its time to end it. I guess this final season will focus on Piper's work helping make prisons better, since she got out.
@Piper (the poster not the character on the show) I doubt Ruby Rose is coming back. When she didn't appear this season, a season that the main cast was spending in Max where Ruby supposedly was, I assumed she had already gotten out. A good lawyer could have gotten her out of that extra time she was given.

Please bring back Ruby Rose. TIA.

Good. This show peaked in season 2.

I think the show has been past it's prime for a while, once many of the great actresses left the show after getting bigger roles elsewhere. I'm happy to see it ending before it goes too far off the cliff; the first three or four seasons were truly memorable television.

This show was excellent when it started. It was based on the real life experiences of Piper Chapman. Unfortunately, it lost its magic after season two. I know it is just a tv show, but the events that went on in the fictional prison were impossible and could never happen. Jenji Kohan did the same thing with the sho "Weeds", which also started out very good, and just got stupid.

I truly enjoy this show, at least they are going out with enough notice to make it good and before it got old and stale.
I could have liked more, but can't fault them for ending it now.
