The cast and crew of popular Netflix series "Orange Is the New Black" announced that season seven will be the final one of the show.

In a touching video, actors including Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba and Taryn Manning bid adieu to the show and told fans that it will end next year, reports metro.co.uk.

Uzo, who plays Susan Warren aka Crazy Eyes, said: "I'm so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Season seven, you will not be disappointed. It is a season you will not forget and we're going to give you everything and more that you could have ever wanted."
