'Orange Is the New Black' rumors: Piper to die; upcoming season to be the series' last?

(Facebook/ Orange is the New Black)Rumors claim that Piper will die on "Orange Is the New Black."

"Orange Is the New Black" season 5 does not have a specific release date yet, but, undeniably, it already has a lot of rumors attached to it, a proof that many people are, indeed, looking forward to its return. After the death of Poussey (Samira Wiley) on the series' previous season, though, the latest rumors claim that another character will die in season 5: Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling).

According to reports, Schilling is returning for "Orange Is the New Black" season 5. However, it is said that the actress will not have long exposure on the series as her character will eventually be killed off. While there is no solid evidence that can support this speculation, many believe that the character getting killed is not a far cry as, after all, Piper has made a lot of enemies on the series' previous season.

It is said that Piper may meet her demise after an uprising inside the Litchfield prison where she and a few others will be killed accidentally. In the event that this turns out to be true, some believe that the upcoming "Orange Is the New Black" season 5 may be the last for the series as well.

On the other hand, it is also speculated that Piper may not die in "Orange Is the New Black" season 5 and will only leave the prison as she finishes her jail term. However, there are some who think otherwise and, in fact, believe that the character's prison term will be extended because of her numerous illegal actions inside the penitentiary.

Whether Piper will die or not, one thing is for sure: The upcoming season will be no easy one for Piper as Schilling herself revealed in a previous interview. In fact, among many things, the character's main focus will be her survival inside the penitentiary.

Will Piper really die in "Orange Is the New Black" season 5? Will the upcoming season be the Netflix dramedy series' last?
