Jenji Kohan’s groundbreaking dramedy Orange Is the New Black began with Piper Chapman’s (Taylor Schilling) imprisonment, and its seventh — and final — season finds her readjusting to life on the outside.

“She’s beginning to navigate what it’s like to live in the civilian world again, and learning that freedom doesn’t come immediately when she steps outside of prison,” Schilling tells EW. “She becomes a little bit bolder expressing what she wants rather than trying to fit in and make it about other people.”

One of the challenges Piper faces in the new season is being separated from Alex (Laura Prepon), whom she married at the end of season 6 before her release. “That’s really what gets dealt with in the season. I think that ends up being what is explored most,” says Schilling. “Piper really realizes that Alex is fundamentally a part of her journey. That’s the choice that Piper is making, that Alex’s love is very important to her.”

As the Netflix series reaches the end of its sentence, Schilling hopes season 7 helps “people feel seen, and that there’s a reflection in the series of what has been happening to the cultural collective.”

Piper Chapman is moving on. Taylor Schilling, who is the only Orange Is the New Black cast member to have appeared in every single episode, is totally OK with the Netflix dramedy ending after season 7.

“It was very weird filming the final scene,” Schilling, 34, told Us Weekly at the New York premiere of The Public on Monday, April 1. “I thought that I had kind of moved through it. It was no surprise. I knew the thing was ending. I knew the date I was wrapping for, like, six months, but it was a very moving thing, to be amongst these people that I’ve known for so long and to know it was the last time I’d be on that set. It almost makes me want to cry right now and it just happened!”

She also noted that it’s “a big ending,” but that she was ready.

“Seven years is a long time and it wasn’t an inconsequential seven years. It was a very formative seven years for my existence as a human,” the Emmy nominee said. “So it was very poignant and it’s time. It feels like the right time for us to go off and tell other stories, but it had a lot of impact!”

She also noted that the cast, which includes, Natasha Lyonne, Laura Prepon and Taryn Manning, all communicate via group text.

“[We have] many that are epic,” she told Us. “You put your phone down for 10 seconds, 84 messages!”

The series wrapped filming in February and the first six seasons are now streaming on Netflix. A season 7 release date has not yet been announced.
