Critic Reviews for Orange Is the New Black Season 7

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (17)

The show's sixth season was its weakest. It blew up familiar, longstanding relationships and doubled down on the guards' sadistic behavior. But the final season, in many ways, is a return to what made it great.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Piper's position at the very end of Orange Is the New Black was predetermined. Taystee's represented a choice on the part of the writers. No show of the current era has so sharply used juxtaposition to depict inequality in America.

Jul 31, 2019 | Full Review…

OITNB leaves the air a pioneer that hardly any other series has caught up to-and with some of its best episodes in years.

Top Critic

Moving, emotional final season that hits mostly high notes, and satisfactorily resolves a whole lot of stories.

Top Critic

The final season of Orange mostly works and does give a compelling, emotional farewell to these characters that we've grown to love.

Top Critic

I don't want to overstate the show's impact, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a show that felt so deeply relevant to the world we live in as it said its goodbyes.

Top Critic

Some of the final two seasons are so sad they can be tough going, but the brilliance of it is that, as with all good drama, your perceptions of the characters keep shifting...

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Orange's season seven is the perfect send off.

Dec 11, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Honest yet optimistic, OITNB Season 7 plays more like a swan song, a tearful farewell to the survivors, victims, and villains of a deeply felt fictional world.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The final season of Orange Is the New Black is wonderful in many ways, but as a final chapter in a long-running narrative? It feels like Season 7 was so concerned about telling even more stories, it forgot to lovingly end some of the ones it started.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

After six long years, the show manages to deliver a thoroughly satisfying final season that will make you laugh, cry and clench your fists in equal measure.

Sep 3, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the best of the peak TV era with barely a false note to be heard.

  • Jun 04, 2020
    Esta temporada final es la más decepcionante, va muy lenta y al final no ofrece nada más que buenas actuaciones y entretenimiento.
  • May 20, 2020
    So Touching & Happy Ending
  • Mar 07, 2020
    Just watch season 1 and 2 and skip the rest.
  • Jan 12, 2020
    Eu gostei, mas não teve um final tão bom quanto o esperado pra fechar todas as lacunas
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Buena manera de cerrar un ciclo

    An excellent wrap up for a show I've been watching for seven season. It's easy to forget how groundbreaking "OITNB" was during it's premiere back in 2013. It was one of the first bingeable shows and brought tons of subscribers to NetFlix as a result. It focused primary on woman. The cast was made up mainly of women of color. Women of all different shapes, sizes, ages and orientations were represented. It was one of the first shows to feature a trans woman (Laverne Cox) in a leading role. "Orange" always had a lot of heart-- even when the plot dragged. The final scene was both brutal and beautiful in it's depiction of ICE detainees. Those poor women have no way out and no hope for the future. "OITNB's" latest legacy may be in humanizing the women it depicted and making audiences more sympathetic to their cause. A few bad decisions and there but the grace of God go I.

    Killed it as always
  • Sep 28, 2019
    So good to see that the series evolved so much, with its 7th and final season being its best.
  • Sep 12, 2019
    I binge watched ever other season and was eager to see the final season. I was disappointed and stopped watching a few episodes in. Obvious, boring, and lacking creativity.
  • Sep 03, 2019
    Uzo Aduba and Lori Petty for me the best actresses, omg, a final season too spectacular.
