This show had seven seasons, 91 episodes, and it’s rumored that an eighth season was considered. Why was this show cancelled? Well, Jenji Kohan, a writer for the series, just decided it was time to stop the show and Netflix accepted. According to Kohan, “After seven seasons, it’s time to be released from prison.”
