New York City fans of the hit live-streaming show “Orange Is The New Black” (OITNB) will not see their favorite stars around the outer boroughs anymore.

On Wednesday, the cast of the Netflix original posted a video message on their official Twitter account for fans announcing that the final season will air in 2019.

“Warning: This may make you cry. The Final Season, 2019. #OITNB,” the tweet read that included a quick 60 second montage.

For seven seasons since 2013, OITNB told the story of Litchfield Penitentiary, an upstate women’s prison, through the lens of Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) who is sentenced to 15 months in prison for drug trafficking.

The main set for OITNB is at Kaufman Studios in Astoria, but throughout the years it was filmed in various locations through the five boroughs, including the shuttered Queens Detention Complex behind Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens; The Sparrow Tavern, Rosario’s Deli and Astoria Park, all in Astoria; on Marlborough Road in Ditmas Park; The Williamsburg Waterfront and Y2K Custom Bikes in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
