“Orange is the New Black” may be switching categories at the Emmys, but it’s keeping the same premiere schedule. Following the same trajectory as its first two seasons, Jenji Kohan’s “drama” will return June 12 for its Season 3 premiere.
Netflix also announced premieres for three new original series: First and foremost, the hotly-anticipated “Wet Hot American Summer” television series — full title: “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” — will unveil itself in the heat of summer, aptly, on July 17. Things developed quickly for the star-studded series set to reunite most of the gang from David Wain’s cult classic film, as it’s gone from rumor to release in just over a year. Check out the trailer for a full list of the returning cast.
Also set to make its series premiere is the intriguing project from the Wachowskis, “Sense8.” Described as a science fiction drama centering on eight strangers who suddenly find themselves mentally and emotionally linked, the under-the-radar series has unveiled a few odd-sounding bits of information lately. Of the many reports, that the series will depict “live births” is chief among the bizarre facts known. Find out everything for yourself when the series premieres June 5.
Finally, Netflix also announced the premiere month for “Between.” The Canadian-based survivalist thriller will come out in May, though not exact date has been confirmed. The series stars Jennette McCurdy and is created by Michael McGowan.
In addition to setting dates for its original series, Netflix also announced when three new stand-up comedy specials will be released. “Chris D’Elia: Incorrigible” will drop on April 17; “Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine)” on May 22; and “What Happened, Miss Simone” on June 26.
