The cast of Orange Is the New Black announced Wednesday that the seventh and final season of the show will air on Netflix in 2019.
“I’m so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together,” Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren, says in a clip posted on Twitter.
The show’s creator Jenji Kohan also released a statement, saying, “After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison.”
Kohan told The New York Times last summer that Season 7 might be the show’s last.
The show is inspired by Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, and premiered in 2013.
