Critic Reviews for Orange Is the New Black Season 7

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (13)

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.

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

That's one of the problems with OITNB - there are so many characters with so many varied issues that we can be left feeling a little short-changed.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

Jul 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
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

Despite the contrivances, Orange is the New Black grips so hard you'll forget the cat's burning and the dinner needs to go out.

Jul 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The show must escalate conflict while at the same time wrapping up individual stories...Orange Is the New Black... complete this task well, even if predictably most of the time.

Jul 29, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I was left in awe of the characters from Orange is the New Black who saw prison for what it was - a hopeless hellscape - and still managed to tap into their pre-prison humanity and infect others with their kindness.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Orange Is The New Black is back and it's better than ever. The episodes and the overall tone of the series is snappier, funnier and full of insight.

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Consider it a miraculous feat of storytelling that the union of these two villains, the ice queen and the limp pushover, became the highlight of Orange Is the New Black' final season. To my surprise, I shipped Fig and Caputo - and I wasn't the only one.

    Killed it as always

    All the PC crap was cringey.
  • Oct 07, 2019
    This series was completely engaging and entertaining till season 4 then deteriorated rapidly, season 5 just about OK, season 6 hardly bearable then now season 7 could not get past sixth episode till now in spite of attempting many times. Became so contrived and boring kind of completely stale as far as plot and characters, then all the bullshit politics and toxic liberalism. Netflix and creators should understand that we have news channels for political drama and we come to these series for entertainment , even if you guys want to endorse or spread some damn political views that should be subtle and secondary objective.

    So good to see that the series evolved so much, with its 7th and final season being its best.
  • Sep 21, 2019
    What I learned in the final season of this show: Everybody in prison is just misunderstood. All white males are jerks, coming into work shaking their dicks at their coworkers every day and have no capability for empathy. A few night classes and some ethnic diversity and you can run a prison with near zero experience. Every prison guard has a power complex. Everybody involved in immigration wants the worst possible outcome for detainees. All prison guards are corrupt. Lesbian sex is the only way women can be satisfied. Artistic Misandry has gotten way too out of control. This could have been such a great opportunity to help people understand the real issues of the prison system and women's prison in particular. Instead blind hatred of a gender has botched the job and prevented any real understanding again...

    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 05, 2019
    Woke garbage. I enjoyed the first two initials seasons of the show but it keeps getting more woke and less entertaining. Someday these writers will figure out that Their audience does not want woke garbage in their shows and instead would like a decent story
  • Sep 03, 2019
    Uzo Aduba and Lori Petty for me the best actresses, omg, a final season too spectacular.
  • Sep 03, 2019
    great series love it
  • Sep 02, 2019
    I used to really like the show in the beginning of the series. I don't like this season even though its gotten more interesting. It's gotten SO preachy about liberal talking points and it's downright hostile to white men. I've seen 2 white men so far prematurely ejaculate leaving the women frustrated. in the previous scene 2 women have glorious perfect sex with each other. Clearly there's an agenda there. However the Hispanic man that Alieda has sex with is an incredible lover. We get it! white men are the devil and are inferior, don't mate with them.
