#Roommates, “Orange Is The New Black” is coming to an end in 2019. Netflix announced the cancellation of the popular series on social media today with a post that read: “Warning: This may make you cry. The Final Season, 2019. #OITNB.”
Season 7, which is slated to premiere next summer, will be our final ride with Piper, Crazy Eyes, Taystee, Dayanara and the rest of the inmates at Litchfield.
“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” series creator Jenji Kohan said, according to 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.”
Cindy Holland, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Content, said it’s sad to see the show come to an end but they are definitely leaving on a high note and it’s “too good to last forever.”
“During production of Season 1, everyone involved with Orange Is The New Black felt like we knew a special secret we couldn’t wait to share with the world. Since then, we have laughed, cried, raged, and roared with the women of Litchfield, and every moment spent with them felt like borrowed time — too good to last forever,” she said. “We will be sad to say goodbye but we will definitely be going out on a high. We are grateful to Jenji Kohan and her groundbreaking vision; to her supremely talented team of writers and producers; and to a once-in-a-lifetime cast and crew for creating a truly special work of art that has inspired conversations and connected audiences around the world.”
