Netflix Sets Dates for OITNB Season 3, Wet Hot American Summer and Others

Orange Is the New Black Season 3 Premiere Date

Prepare to get back on the chain gang on June 12: That’s when Netflix’s prison dramedy Orange Is the New Black will return for a third season, the streaming video service announced Monday.

In addition, the much-buzzed-about Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp — a continuation of the 2001 cult comedy film — will be available for viewing on July 17.

Other premiere dates released Monday include those for the Wachowski siblings sci-fi drama Sense8 (June 5) and a stand-up comedy special from Undateable star Chris D’Elia (April 17).

Release dates for Narcos, a drama starring Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as a Mexican DEA agent out to kill cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, and Club de Cuervos, a Spanish-language soccer comedy, are forthcoming. Similarly, Between, a Canadian thriller starring Jeannette McCurdy (iCarly), will be available for viewing sometime in May.

As for Netflix’s awaited resurrection of A&E’s Longmire, a spokesperson confirms that a release date for Season 4 has not yet been set.

    I predict I won’t be very productive at work on Monday June 13th after I finish binge watching OITNB on the 12th… ;-)

    This is a brilliant strategy by Netflix. Summer programming doesn’t have very much competition. They could attract a lot of new business this way.

      However, the legacy networks have also taken to running new shows in summer unlike years ago when all they had were reruns of their in-season shows. The whole landscape is turning year round.

      My wife and I started watching OITNB last summer when nothing else was on. Loved it! Spread the first two seasons out over the course of the summer. Looking forward to its return on 6/12!

      I think most people that want to watch Orange have already watched the first two seasons.

    Finally! It feels like years since season 2 of Orange was out. I wish we didn’t have to wait so long but I’m just glad we have the date now. Best news I’ve heard in awhile!

    Have they announced when Chelsea Handler’s new show will debut? 2016 right?

  5. Margot R Thompson says:

    Longmire Season 4 is awaited, Netflix! Please complete the negotiations & announce your start date!
    There are other tv series carriers, as you well know.
