The next series of Orange is the New Black will be its last. Season seven is due to air on Netflix at some point next year, though there’s no word on when exactly that will be.
Cast and crew members took to Twitter to share what the show has meant to them.
Starting in 2013, the show was one of Netflix’s earliest original hits, and predated the service’s massive push into original content. It told of life behind bars in a women’s prison, with plenty of dramatic moments lightened by a deft comedic touch.
The six series won four Emmy Awards and garnered plenty more nominations. It was widely praised by critics for its realistic – but never overdone – portrayal of life in jail.
The show was based on a memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman.
Netflix recently announced it would retire another of its hit, long-running series, House of Cards. Though that one, like Amazon’s Transparent, has undergone something of a reinvention following the loss of its lead actor due to allegations of sexual harassment.
