Netflix Announces Summer Premieres for ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK and More

Posted on March 2, 2015 at 2:59 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Netflix has released its summer schedule, so mark your calendars in preparation for TV bingeing, my friends. First up, Between will debut in May, although an exact date is not yet known. The Canadian sci-fi drama series will focus on a young, pregnant teenager (and daughter of a minister) in a small town, one which is dealing with a disease that has killed everyone over the age of 21. So basically, the CW’s dream scenario. The show will run for 6 hourlong episodes.

Sense8, another sci-fi series, this one by the Wachowskis (who co-wrote and co-directed the series with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski), deals with 8 strangers from across the globe, who become mentally and emotionally linked via an evolutionary leap, which has huge implications for the future of 206113-netflix_originalmankind.

Orange is the New Black Season 3 will return June 12th, while Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp will kick off July 17th.

Two comedy specials have also been given premiere dates; Chris D’Elia: Incorrigible on April 17th, and Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) on May 22, while the biographical documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? (which premiered at Sundance) will debut on Netflix June 26th.

However, the upcoming series Narcos (a drug cartel drama) and the Spanish-language comedy Club de Cuervos have yet to be given firm dates for their premieres.
