LOS ANGELES - “Orange Is the New Black” is fading to black after its upcoming seventh season.
Cast members posted a video Wednesday announcing the series' 2019 end, which was confirmed by a Netflix spokeswoman.
In the video, the actresses thanked fans for their support and promised a fulfilling wrap-up to the comedy-drama set in a women's prison.
Actress Kate Mulgrew said she'll miss being with a “groundbreaking” TV series.
“Orange Is the New Black” was inspired by Piper Kerman's memoir about her time in federal prison.
The show was nominated twice for top-series Emmy honours, and Uzo Aduba won two acting trophies. The series was an early hit for Netflix when the streaming service began showing original programming.
