All good things must come to an end… ugh, but do they really have to?!
In the newly released Season 5 of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, Danielle Brooks acted circles around all of her colleagues. Not only was her character, Taystee, at the heart of the story, but she played a huge role in why this season worked in such an oddly spectacular way.
Unfortunately for us, Brooks is already eyeing her final bow and looking to expand her horizons. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Brooks revealed that she’s locked down till Season 7, but that the future may hold something different for her.
“We have until seven for sure,” explained Brooks. “To be honest, I don’t know if I want to play an inmate past that. I don’t know if I want to do that because I have a lot in me and a lot that I want to share with the world and different characters I want to be able to bring to life. After seven, I think it might be time for me to spread my wings, but I don’t want to speak too fast on that.”
Yes, please reconsider, girl. What would OITNB even be without Taystee? We already lost the effervescent Poussey, we can’t lose you, too!
Are you surprised by Brooks’ revelation, or are you okay with saying bye, bye, bye to Taystee? Hit the comments to dish and discuss all your feelings.
