Orange Is the New Black Season 3 finally has a release date, with the final ever run of the Netflix series set to premiere this July.

Taystee’s friendship with Cindy still hangs in the balance as her life sentence looms, Gloria and her kitchen staff are confronted by the hard truth of Polycon’s newest profit stream, while others chase drugs or dreams and grapple with the reality of their place in this world.

Orange Is the New Black will end with Season 7.
Jenji Kohan’s prison drama, based on Piper Kerman’s memoirs, has become one of Netflix’s flagship shows, blending hard-hitting and pertinent commentary on the penal system with humanist stories, diverse casting and winning humour. Its first season racked up 12 Primetime Emmy nominations and was Netflix’s most-watched original series. Back when Season 4 premiered, Netflix showed just how confident it was in the show by giving it a three-season renewal, with Season 6 debuting earlier this year. Now, after its sixth run saw the main cast moved to Maximum Security Prison, acting as a soft reboot for the programme, the series’ cast have announced on Twitter that their sentences are officially coming to an end after their next season.
“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” Kohan told Deadline 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.”
“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,” added Vice President of Original Content for Netflix Cindy Holland. “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.”
“Orange is the New Black has profoundly impacted popular culture worldwide, and has played a prominent role in building Lionsgate into a platform-defining brand,” commented Kevin Beggs, Group Chairman of Lionsgate Television, which produced the series. “Thanks to the brilliance of Jenji Kohan, the mastery of the creative and production team, the transcendent cast, and our tremendous partnership with Netflix, the series has surpassed our expectations year after year. With great pride, we are working together to bring this landmark series to a triumphant, satisfying close with the upcoming seventh season.”
