Orange Is The New Black is gearing up for its seventh and final season, and fans have finally been given an air date - July 26. Netflix also released the first teaser of the new season, with our favourites returning to Litchfield. Viewers will get to see Piper’s struggle with life on the outside, Taystee’s friendship with Cindy as she faces a life sentence, among other inmates’ stories.
The trailer opens with an angry Taystee (Danielle Brooks) who can be heard saying "When you make a bad choice, what you've done can be its own punishment." Last season saw Taystee defending herself against the death of Desmond "Desi" Piscatella (Brad William Henke).
Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) and Tiffany Doggett (Taryn-Manning) also appear in the trailer, as well as Alex Vause (Laura Prepon), Dayanara Diaz (Dascha Polanco), and Gloria Mendoza (Selenis Leyva). The promo also looks at Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) after her release from Litchfield Penitentiary. "I recently got out of federal prison and I’m trying to get back on my feet," Piper says in the trailer.
