What Happened In The First Seven Seasons Of Orange Is The New Black?

Not only is Orange Is The New Black Netflix’s most popular series that is driving its fans crazy with amazing, unique plots, but it is also the longest-running original series on Netflix. The TV series premiered in 2013 and aired its seventh season in 2019.

Orange Is The New Black has been a total entertainment, and a lot of fans have it on repeat! You can always head back and watch the series on Netflix. Let’s delve into the plot points of the series.

This series is based on a popular novel of the same name titled Orange Is The New Black: My Year In A Women’s Prison. The book was written by Piper Kerman but that doesn’t take away anything from the show.

Orange Is The New Black’s storyline revolves around protagonist Piper Chapman who is played by Taylor Schilling. Chapman is sentenced to fifteen months in prison and she is sent to Litchfield Penitentiary which is a minimum-security federal prison for women.

As the story slowly unveils we see various other characters coming and making the show truly unique and engaging. All the characters in Orange Is The New Black are so diverse that it always has something in store for everyone.

When the show first began, critics had predicted that the show might not gain popularity since its characters were too diverse. They believed the show would be hard to follow, but the show proved them wrong!

Whom Will We See In Orange Is The New Black 8?


As already discussed, Orange Is The New Black has brought in numerous interesting and diverse characters into the series at various levels. The main character with whom the show begins, Piper Chapman, doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Other characters such as Suzan played by Uzo Aduba, Alex played by Laura Prepon, Tesha played by Danielle Brooks and Nicky Nichols played by Natasha Lyonne are also expected to return for any subsequent seasons. There are many more characters who are also expected to be back for the 8th season such as Poussey, Tiffany, Sophia, Lorna, Galina, Cindy, and Stella, among others.

The introduction of so many characters is what makes the show truly unique and interesting. The 8th season of Orange Is The New Black might not see the introduction of any new character but don’t be surprised if the creators have something else in mind!

There are speculations that new characters might come in for the 8th season. The show may also continue for further seasons as it has become so popular. The IMDb rating of more than 8 or even 9 for most of the episodes says it all.

When Can We Expect The 8th Season Of Orange Is The New Black?

Over the course of seven seasons, we saw conflicts break out in the women’s prison, how love grows in the most unexpected of places, and how friendships are forged in the midst of tragedy.

In season 7, we see a newly released Piper struggling to adapt to her life after prison. She works for her dad to make a living. In the season finale, we see Alex and several other inmates from Litchfield being transferred to a prison in Ohio. So, Piper moves to Ohio to be closer to Alex and visit her every day.

The cliffhanger here is that Daya’s mother, Aleida confronts her daughter, and ends up strangling her in the process. While some characters get the ending they deserve, Daya’s fate was left unclear, which is why fans are expecting a new season to drop.

After a long run of more than six years, we can always expect that the show will return to our screens soon, although there has been an official announcement that it might not continue anymore.

But fans around the globe are still hopeful that the creators will change their minds as the 7th season did not give the closure fans would have liked. A perfect end is much needed for a show that has kept its audience glued to the screen for seven seasons.

If you hop onto YouTube, you will see several videos and compilations made by the fans. However, no official teaser has been released yet for Orange Is The New Black. Don’t be disheartened by this news as even the videos by the fans are a great way to re-visit this amazing series. You can also head over to Netflix and watch the show again till there is any news about the 8th season of Orange Is The New Black.
