Orange Is The New Black season 7 is what fans are anxiously waiting for because it has been a long time since they saw the prison drama. I know the sixth season was released in July 2018 and we have barely completed six months from it. I would say that fans are excited because they want to know when will the next season release.
Talking about six months, many were searching about the seventh season right after completing the sixth season. So, it is high time now to know when will the next season release. But first of all, will there be a seventh season? The answer is obviously yes, it was known from February 2016 that the show would have seven seasons.
But here comes the disappointing part, it will be the last season of the show. It is the saddest news to hear, but it was confirmed in October 2018 that there would not be anything more than the seventh season. However, when is the next season hitting the small screens? Unfortunately, Netflix has not announced a release date of the final season. But, that would not stop us from speculating.
The show has been released in either June or July, which makes it easy for us to predict that the next season might also release in June or July of 2019. Additionally, the show has also kept the number of episodes constant throughout the run. Which means, the next season would also have the same number of episodes, which is 13.
We recently received a confirmation that the shooting has completed for the seventh season, and the fans were even more escalated to know about a release date. However, June or July of 2019 seems a bit difficult as the shooting has recently completed and it would take time get the show on air. We might see the second season a bit later than we expected, except in a case where the makers do double shifts to stay on the schedule. Here is the Instagram post which confirmed that the filming has completed.
Piper was released from jail in the last season, which was happy news for Orange Is The New Black Freaks. But many were worried whether it will make the next season as interesting as it always has been. I am pretty much sure it will be compelling as it would be a treat to see Piper adjusting in the real-life conditions. Furthermore, we would see the future of other jail members too! Take a look at the main cast of the show!

Updated on 22 March:
The shooting was completed on 26 February as the post already shows, there is still no further details announced. Another Twitter post from Jenji Kohan is linked below which shows that the seventh season has been filmed. Take a look!
Coming on to the point, the release date has not been announced yet, but this year, it might delay. The shooting has recently completed, and it might not make it on the Television on its on its usual June or July slot. But still, that is what we are predicting, the official statement is yet to be made.
Moving on to the seventh season being the last, it is a confirmed bitter truth. However, Lionsgate TV Group Chairman Kevin Beggs had made a statement which might evince a potential sequel. He said, “Keep in mind we own that series and will be distributing it for years to come. We’re already in discussions and, when the timing is right, we’ll talk further with Jenji (Kohan, writer of OITNB) about a potential sequel.”
