The Teaser Trailer for The Final Season of “Orange is the New Black” is Making Us All Weep
Award-winning Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” has given us both problematic and deeply satisfying character development, plot twists, and grief. This summer, its seventh and final season will be streamed to Netflix, and nobody’s ready.
OITNB just shared a teaser trailer to its final season, and while it gives us little to no information about the plot of its finale, it is consistently making viewers cry.
Folks are literally crying over the touching OITNB final season teaser.
The teaser ends with Piper Chapman and Alex Vause meeting each other–one in street clothes and the other still in prison uniform. OITNB writers have taken us on an emotional rollercoaster with these two, and we’re hoping they really do get to walk off into the sunset.
Netflix has shared some stills, including this one of Piper on the outside.
It’s a little strange to see so many people not in uniform, especially Piper. Fans are hoping #Vausman is endgame material and that they will be reunited on the outside.
Many fans are finding the anticipation for Season 7 to be bittersweet.
The hashtag #OrangeForever is trending because the fandom really is forever. Let the entire series re-binge commence. We have two months to get back up to date with everything.
We did see Maritza back on set with Flaca, which means #Flaritza is back!
We see the two fooling around behind bars, singing along to the series’ theme song, laughing away. Of course, this shook the fandom.
Diane Guerrero is back for the final season!
The actress did not appear in Season 6 for even a single scene after writers concluded Season 5 with a separation of #Flaritza. Guerrero appeared in several different films, including The Godmother and Killerman during production of Season 6.
#Flaritza fans are reigniting the #FlaritzaForever hashtag in standom.
It wouldn’t have felt like the series finale if these two comadres weren’t hand in hand. We’re here for more #Flaritza content.
One fan noticed that the red bucket in the final trailer scene read this message:
Yup. That sums it up. Seems the cast, crew, and fans are ready to see the story conclude in the best way possible.
Other fans are making a clear and direct appeal to the writers to give us what we want.
The wounds from the Game of Thrones finale is having a ripple affect on other fandoms. So we’re using our communication tools and being clear and direct. No loose ends.
Of course, the gays are screaming.
Myself included. What will I do without all my favorite prison lesbians giving me that chingona attitude I bring into my everyday life? I cry.
The entire series will be available on Netflix on July 26.
And yes, Dascha, we will remember all your voices and faces. 😭
So without further ado, prepare to weep.
All good things must come to an end. We’re not ready. Thank you for all the memories and we can’t wait to see what is going done in the final season of OITNB.
