In October, Netflix announced that the seventh season of Orange Is The New Black would be the last one.
It’s sad but, given the quality of season six, it‘s time to stop this series we will have enjoyed so much.
But know it may continue as a sequel or as a spin-off.
Lionsgate Television, the production company of the series, would consider a sequel. They are talking with Orange Is The New Black creator and showrunner Jenji Kohan.
“We’re already in discussions and, when the timing is right, we’ll talk further with Jenji about a potential sequel,” Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs told The Hollywood Reporter.
Executive producer Tara Herrmann also said that the Orange Is the New Black team has discussed spinoff ideas like a Broadway production, or following couples Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs) and Polly Harper (Maria Dizzia) or Cal and Carol Chapman (Deborah Rush).
The discussion has been underway for some time. The announcement will be made by the end of the series, so by 2019.
Orange Is The New Black was the longest original series on Netflix.
"We’re really proud of the long run that Orange Is the New Black had. It remains one of Netflix’s most-watched shows. We’re ending on a high note. Keep in mind we own that series and will be distributing it for years to come," added Beggs.
