Maybe fans are waiting for long, but 'Orange Is the New Black' Season 7 is happening! Back in February 2016, the series' original distributor Netflix renewed it for three seasons and Jenji Kohan vowed to stay with the show at least until the seventh season.
When can we expect 'Orange Is the New Black' Season 7? If you minutely look at the premiere months of all the previous seasons, you can also easily speculate that the upcoming season is going to be released anytime in July 2019. Season 1 was only premiered in July 2013 and the other seasons till 6 were all premiered in June every year. Hence, there is a big possibility that the next season will be premiered in July this year. Whereas, since all the previous seasons consisted of 13 episodes, the next season is likely to have the same number of episodes.
Unfortunately, fans of comedy-drama web television series will be disappointed to know that the series is going to end after the airing of Season 7. This was aired in the official Twitter account in October last year portraying the casts and members expressing their experiences and opinions including offering gratitude to the viewers for making the series success.
As far as the recurring casts are concerned, fortunately, there were no major deaths in Season 6, hence there is a big chance for the whole gang to come back in the upcoming season 7. And we have learnt that Amanda Fuller and Vicci Martinez will also be reprising their roles from Season 6 as Madison Murphy aka Badison and Dominga Duarte aka Daddy respectively.
On the other hand, 'Orange Is the New Black' Season 7 is expected to focus more on the life of Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) who has already been released from prison. During the starting of the series in 2013, she was sentenced to 15 months in New York's Litchfield Penitentiary. Whereas, Tasha Jefferson aka Taystee (Danielle Brooks) is also expected to get much more exposure in Season 7 as she was found guilty of killing Desi Piscatella (Brad William Henke).
