Orange Is the New Black is set to return for its seventh and final season — that's right, final — on Netflix at the end of July. Not that you had any doubts, but rest assured that Jenji Kohan's series will continue tackling "the most difficult, relevant, and human stories of our time" in its last outing, according to Netflix, as it deals with drug addiction, mental illness, unexpected friendships, and life on the outside. But, since the show's premiere date is still far off, the streaming platform graciously shared a handful of photos from the upcoming episodes that tease what's to come for Litchfield's finest.
Piper, of course, is now free. After nabbing an early release at the end of season six, it seems she'll have some struggles dealing with life on the outside. Meanwhile, back in Max, Taystee comes to terms with her life sentence as she tries to figure out what to do about her friendship with Cindy, and Gloria and her kitchen staff are forced to contend with PolyCon's latest money-making scheme. Get a glimpse of Red, Nicky, Suzanne, and more fan-favourite characters in the photos from season seven, ahead.
