Orange is the New Black‘s time is nearly served. The Netflix series will end with season 7, bringing to a close a show that launched back in 2013. This is likely for the best, as the prison dramedy has run out of steam at this point. The final season will arrive on the streaming service in 2019.

The Hero centers on an aging movie star who’s best remembered for his performance in a beloved western forty years earlier. It’s a vehicle written specifically for actor Sam Elliott, who, of course, has his own storied history in that genre and has embraced that vibe as a key part of his acting persona, even in films as divergent as Ghost Rider and The Big Lebowski. While The Hero doesn’t offer any particularly insightful observations about what it means to get older in Hollywood, it’s still a pleasure to watch Elliott – a perennial ensemble player since his made-for-TV movie heyday of the ’80s and ’90s – do terrific work as the clear lead of a film that lasers in on his sensibilities as a performer.

Orange Is the New Black returns to Netflix on June 12, and the trailer for the show’s third season has arrived. We see the return of Laura Prepon‘s character (aka “the Bettie Page of Litchfield”) to the inmate roster, there are a few other new faces, and we see the results when Crazy Eyes (Suzanne Warren) makes an effort to write… porn? Sorry, a love story. Check out the Orange Is the New Black S3 trailer below.
