Reports suggest that “Orange is the New Black” is ending on Netflix for good this summer. And we also know who will not be returning on the show. There’s no set release date for the final season of “OITNB” yet.
“I think I can go ahead and answer that question even though it will be a spoiler,” Dillon said. “They already wrapped the final season.”
Epps was the leader of a group of white supremacists at the Litchfield prison. During the riot on season five, she held celebrity Judy King (Blair Brown), the hostage. Dillon’s character was among the many faces who were notably missing from season 6. Dillon’s character was last seen on season five waiting to head on a bus to an undisclosed location. Many of the women of Litchfield were separated and, as a result, headed off to different prison facilities.
Natasha Lyonne, who plays Nicky on the series, directs an upcoming episode on the final season.
“They’ve built such iconically brilliant roles within the show. And now I’m so excited to kind of stay really close to them for the rest of my life and just get to see all the incredible work that they’re gonna continue to do,” Lyonne said.
