And that’s a series wrap!
On Tuesday, filming on Orange Is the New Black‘s seventh and final season concluded, with executive producer Jenji Kohan, author Piper Kerman and series star Taylor Schilling among those documenting the last moments on set.
OITNB‘s swan song was first announced in October. “After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” Kohan said 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.”
The Season 6 finale featured Piper’s early release from Litchfield, while an earlier episode hinted at the possibility of her writing a memoir about her time in prison. Taystee, meanwhile, was found guilty for the murder of Piscatella (after the MCC guards successfully covered their tracks) and sentenced to life behind bars (read recap). A premiere date for Season 7 has not yet been revealed.
