Orange is the New Black Season 8?

With that show, Taylor became a national heartthrob and actually she nailed in it that her fans expressed their anger when season 7 ended. In fact they took it to social media and urged show creator to back with season 8 but at that time they refused and said they didn’t even thought of shooting season 8. However with constant love and urge for revival, creators might think about season 8 but the exact date for Orange is the New Black season 8 will still be under shadow. If they agree for season 8 then it will surely going to take more than then anticipated so we can just now wait for official declaration regarding this.
