Late 2016, the Lionsgate-produced series was picked up for three more seasons right before the fourth season premiere.
The show was based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name. The first season had its debut on July 11, 2013, which earned many praises from the critics and viewers. It has also garnered 12 Emmy Nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy series.
Season 6 launched last July where It picks up right after the event of the fifth season, one week after the emergency response team stormed Litchfield Penitentiary, the ladies of Litch have been torn apart, literally and figuratively, as they enter a new facility in the sixth season of Orange Is The New Black. Now newbies, they must navigate new rules and power dynamics, starting at the bottom, and getting hazed by inmates and tortured by guards. Friendships will be tested and new allegiances formed — some by choice and others by circumstance — as the women face a slew of charges from the riot. Will they take plea deals and turn on each other or band together and keep their bonds intact?
The sixth season is available for streaming at Netflix and the seventh and final season is set to debut sometime later this year.
