Months have passed by and fans of ‘Orange is the new black’ are expectantly waiting to hear the news about the release of season 8 of the show. And, why wouldn’t they? The way the creators of the show made every character so relatable and the way the stories of every individual was told, made the viewers feel like they were living with all the characters in real life. The profound storytelling skills can be the reason alone for the renewal of the series.
What are some other reasons for the renewal of the show?
Before we jump on to find more reasons for the release of season 8, we know what you are wondering about. The finale episode gave perfect closure to some storylines, wouldn’t another season just ruin the purpose of that ending? Like Piper and Alex. Well, in a way, your concerns are completely valid. Those characters have found their closure, there was and there is still no point for the writers of the show to drag them along because at some point of time it would totally become repetitive. However, as the fans of the show, you somewhat know that a few individual characters who need another season for their story to reach out to the viewers.
Let’s take a look at them:
The chemistry between Natalie and Caputo
While both Natalie and Caputo were pretending to be nothing more than friends with benefits, we always felt this spark of chemistry in between the two of them, which was fulfilled with both of them moving together in season 7. There were many funny moments of both of them as friends, but we wouldn’t be wrong if we say that we need another season to watch them grow as a couple.
What happened to Taystee?
Despite Piper being the center of the finale season, fans still had their hearts out for Taystee. We all saw that Taystee was just trying to lend a helping hand, which in no way deserved her to be sent for a life sentence. With the demand for the release for the new season, the viewers of the show want to learn more about Taystee’s life in prison and whether or not she will be set free.
More of the mother-daughter duo
In the initial part of the series, Daya was portrayed as a timid girl, who didn’t have anything to do with being in the limelight. However, during the riots, Daya was seen in the frontline. For a moment, it felt like Daya had switched souls with someone else. In the upcoming season, it would be really interesting to see Aleida and her daughter standing against one another.
What do we know about the renewal of season 8?
Well, this news will surely come as a disappointment to many fans of the series. Honestly, the makers of the show haven’t made up their minds about a possible renewal of the series. The chairman of ‘Orange is the new black’s’ production company with a heavy heart stated,
“Thanks to the brilliance of Jenji Kohan, the mastery of the creative nd production team, the transcendent cast, and our tremendous partnership with Netflix, the series has surpassed our expectations year after year. With great pride, we are working together to bring this landmark series to a triumphant, satisfying close with the upcoming seventh season.”
Recalling the finale episode
The final episode of ‘Orange is the new black’, focuses mainly on providing closure to Piper’s character. We see Piper goes to visit Alex, where Alex tells Piper that she is being transferred to Ohio penitentiary. Alex then tells Piper that it would be better for them to break apart as she doesn’t want her to keep waiting for the next three years(despite being hopelessly in love with Piper).
Piper after meeting Alex tells her ex-fiance, Larry Bloom, about her breakup with Alex, which in his point of view was only for Piper’s best. After deciding what to do with her life, Piper hits the road to embark on her new journey. Well, the good part was that the viewers did get to be a part of Piper’s new life. We see Piper sweeping the floor at the Starbucks and enrolling into law school. No matter what people say, we think that Piper never looked happier and this is the ending that she truly deserved.
