It is because of dormancy and it will pop back in spring and be fine. Sometimes plants can hold on to their pitchers for longer depending on the plant's vigor and the amount of cold temperature but usually they look like this and often people cut everything on a sarracenia back to the rhizome before spring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDRCr2zELA8

I leave everything on personally, or cut the pitchers halfway leaving everything that's non-brown for a boost in photosynthesis in spring but that's just me. Either way it's normal and alive, and will resume growth in the spring.

Thanks you two. I wasn't sure if it was some sort of shipping damage. I don't have much faith in the USPS, especially since he literally threw my package on the porch the sidewalk. I was wondering, how long does it take in spring for the pitchers to regrow?

Depends on your climate (the faster it gets warm the quicker they will grow) and a bit on the species or hybrid.

Hard for me to say actually...seems like since 2012 I have never paid attention to the growth rate of individual pitchers my sarracenia lol. As a general guideline your plant should look "back to normal" with replacement pitchers towards the end of spring.

Looks like a minor cross, they look like that in winter and will commence growth in spring.
Cheers
