Created by Jenji Kohan from Piper Kerman’s 2010 memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black is a comedy-drama series. The plot revolves around Piper Chapman, a New Yorker in her 30s, who gets sentenced to 15 months in prison for smuggling drug money for her then-girlfriend Alex Vause, 10 years after the crime. When she is brought to Litchfield Penitentiary in Upstate New York, she reunites with Alex.

The series premiered on July 11, 2013, and has since garnered rave reviews and widespread popularity. Season 7 began streaming on July 26, 2019. If you are curious about when season 8 is coming out, we got you covered.

Here’s all the Orange is the New Black Season 8 release date information we know so far, and all the details on when it is coming out.

Is there an Orange is the New Black Season 8 release date?

There is no Orange is the New Black Season 8 release date as the series has ended after seven seasons.

In October 2018, it was reported that the upcoming season 7 of Orange is the New Black would be its last. In 2016, the series received a three-season renewal order, and it was presumed that the show could continue well beyond that, with the series creator Jenji Kohan running operations for as long as she wished. However, it was ultimately decided to end the show after seven seasons.

“After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison,” Kohan said in a statement. “I will miss all the badass ladies of Litchfield and the incredible crew we’ve worked with. My heart is orange but fade to black.”

In November 2018, The Hollywood Reporter published an article that stated that Lionsgate TV Group, the production house behind the series, was considering the possibility of developing a sequel. However, Laura Prepon, who portrays Alex Vause in the show, told PopCulture in May 2022 that Kohan wasn’t thinking about making a spin-off at the moment. “I don’t think [Jenji] wants to do that…I think she wants to see some daylight,” the actress said. “I know that people would love to have some kind of spinoff, so I don’t know. We’ll see what happens but Jenji is just — her mind and her writing, oh man, she’s so great.”

The cast includes Taylor Schilling as Piper Chapman, Laura Prepon as Alex Vause, Uzo Aduba as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren, Danielle Brooks as Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson, Natasha Lyonne as Nicky Nichols, Taryn Manning as Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett, Selenis Leyva as Gloria Mendoza, Adrienne C. Moore as Cynthia “Black Cindy” Hayes, Dascha Polanco as Dayanara “Daya” Diaz, Nick Sandow as Joe Caputo, Yael Stone as Lorna Morello, Samira Wiley as Poussey Washington, Jackie Cruz as Marisol “Flaca” Gonzales, Lea DeLaria as Carrie “Big Boo” Black, Jason Biggs as Larry Bloom, and more.
