In a video posted to Twitter, the cast shared the news with fans. “I’m going to miss playing and living on the edge of one of the most groundbreaking, original, and controversial series of this decade,” said Kate Mulgrew, who plays Galina “Red” Reznikov.

“I’m so grateful for the fun times, the knowledge, the friendships, the love, the family that we have created together,” added Uzo Aduba, aka the show’s Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren.
