The Netflix original was adapted from a memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman. It follows the story of a fictional version of the author played by Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman). The show rose to popularity with its comedic tones as it showed what’s behind detained women living challenging lives.
For its final season, our favorite characters are seen forced to come to terms on how their stay behind bars has changed their lives forever. Piper is seen struggling to fit into the outside world after completing her sentence. While life in maximum security continues on without our main character. See the full trailer below:
