The iconic series, which heralded the new normal of high-budget streaming originals, has been going strong for six seasons now, largely thanks to its no-nonsense approach to important social issues like racism, transphobia and police brutality.

But despite how popular the show continues to be, Netflix recently confirmed that this year’s seventh season will be its last, putting an end to months of rumours and speculation from fans.

While it’s disappointing, there is some good news, as the streaming service have just announced that the final season will be available to watch worldwide from 26 July, meaning there’s not long to wait for more adventures with our favourite inmates.

“In its final season, the ladies of Litchfield come to terms with the fact that prison has changed them forever,” reads the season’s official bio.

“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.”

A new teaser video has also been released, which sees several members of the cast sing Orange’s official theme song – love it or hate it, you know the show wouldn’t be the same without those never-ending opening credits.

Watch the teaser below.
