Streaming service Netflix has announced premiere dates for its upcoming slate of original series and stand-up comedy specials.

The eagerly anticipated new season of “Orange Is the New Black” will come out June 12. The show has been one of the darlings of the awards circuit, including winning three Emmys last year, and in the process has helped raise the profile of Netflix in original programming.

“Orange” received 10 Primetime Emmy nominations in 2014, winning for outstanding single-camera picture editing for a comedy series and outstanding casting for a comedy series, along with a win for Uzo Aduba (“Crazy Eyes”) as outstanding guest actress in a comedy. The show has also received four Golden Globe nominations, and this year won two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Netflix also announced a premiere date of June 5 for the original series “Sense8,” with “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” set for July 17. “Between” was listed with a premiere date of May 2015. A rollout date has not yet been set for “Narcos.”
