'Orange Is the New Black' Trailer: Season 7 Says Goodbye, Inside and Outside of Prison


A lot has changed in seven years. When "Orange is the New Black" first premiered on Netflix, the streaming service was still in the infancy of its eventual programming empire.

Now, as the show is set to debut its final episodes, the group of women who were first brought together within the walls of Litchfield now find themselves drifting apart in more ways than one. Most notably, Piper (Taylor Schilling) is working to adjust to post-prison life, both inside of a cubicle and literally out in the wilderness.

This first extended glimpse at the new season also shows a reunion of sorts with Alex (Laura Prepon), who is still serving her own sentence. There are plenty of other outside developments still affecting the rest of the women inside. Taystee (Danielle Brooks) is grappling with the aftermath of being charged and convicted for Piscatella's death. And the show will continue to look at the prison staff, including the unlikely warden couple of Caputo (Nick Sandow) and Figueroa (Alysia Reiner).

Uzo Aduba, Kate Mulgrew, and returning Netflix star Natasha Lyonne are all coming back for the final season, as previewed in an emotional farewell Twitter video last fall. When the show revealed that it would not be returning for another season, series creator Jenji Kohan said: "After seven seasons, it's time to be released from prison. 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."

The shares plunged as much as 13% to $314 in late trading after Netflix reported the loss of 130,000 customers in the U.S. -- the result of higher prices and a weak slate of TV shows. It signed up 2.8 million subscribers internationally in the period, roughly half what the company predicted. "Netflix has a difficult road ahead, with looming competition and the removal of popular content," said EMarketer Inc. analyst Eric Haggstrom.
