And Orange Is The New Black is no different, with the series sadly coming to a close. However, the trailer for season seven has dropped, with Netflix confirming that it’ll be hitting the streaming service on 26th July for one last hurrah.
The teaser video shows the cast singing the theme song on what appears to be a theatre set ahead of the new series release, with the plot summary reading:
“Piper struggles with life on the outside, while life in Max, as corrupt and unjust as ever, goes on without her. 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.”
According to Netflix, the Litchfield inmates ‘come to terms with the fact that prison has changed them forever’.

In October last year it was revealed the prison drama would come to an end in an emotional video featuring several cast members, who promised it would go out with a bang.
The cast said: “We’ve got some news… The final season is coming.”
Uzo Aduba (Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren) said: “I’m so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together.”
She added: “Season 7, you will not be disappointed. It is a season you will not forget, and we’re going to give you everything and more that you have ever wanted.”
“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” showrunner Jenji Kohan said about the show’s cancellation.
“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.”
Vice president of original content for Netflix, Cindy Holland, added: “During production of season one, 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.
“We will be sad to say goodbye but we will definitely be going out on a high.”
The official OITNB Twitter account also recently shared some photos from the new series, which you can have a peek at below:

He subsequently honed his writing skills over the course of several sex-related articles, bringing a very public shame to his family's good name.
