One of the best comedy-drama over Netflix i.e., Orange Is The New Black is going to end with its season 7.

Well, as we said earlier, the seventh season was last, and Kohan is firm with her decision. After the official announcement after its wrap up on 17th October 2018, Kohan said, “After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison. I will miss all the badass ladies of Litchfield and the incredible crew we have worked with. My heart is orange but fades to Black.”
Cindy Holland, the vice president of Netflix Originals, also stated that “We will be sad to say goodbye, but we will be going out on a high. We are grateful to Jenji Kohan and her groundbreaking vision, to her supremely talented team of writers and producers, and to a once in a lifetime cast and crew for creating an extraordinary work of art that has inspired conversations and connected audiences around the world.”
Therefore, we now know that Netflix has not renewed the comedy-drama series for its eight seasons; and the seventh season that was released on 26th July 2019 is the last one for all of us.
