OITNB June 12th

Netflix has set the premiere date for season three of “Orange Is the New Black,” June 12th.

So which characters are back? Taylor Schilling as Piper Chapman, and we’re going to be seeing more of her girlfriend Alex, played by Laura Prepon. Jason Biggs will not be in this season as Piper’s fiance Larry, so guess what that’s going to do to the story line, though they creators have told us there’s still a chance he could show up in future seasons. Hmmm…

Both Diabe Guerrero (Ramos) and Pablo Schreiber (George ‘Pornstache’ Mendez) are not back this season either – both have new shows they’re working on – BUT Mary Steenburgen will be in season three playing Pornstache’s mother! Since he’s in jail and Daya (Dascha Polanco) is about to have his baby we can, again, speculate what’s going to happen there too. Hmmm…


Three others joining the cast are Blair Brown,Mike Birbiglia and Marsha Stephanie Blake, though we still don’t know too many details about them.

And, will it stay dirty? Oh yeah. Laura Prepon let it slip last summer at the Critics Choice Awards that she and Schilling were about to film a big sex scene.


We haven’t heard a date yet for the Netflix resurrection of Longmire but there are a couple of other new series on the way.

Canadian thriller “Between,” about a town suffering from a strange disease that kills everyone over the age of 21, debuts in May.

“Sense8? is a new drama from “Matrix” creators Andy and Lana Wachowski about the ways technology can both unites and divides us. The sci-fi thriller premieres June 5th.

“Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” arrives on July 17th with a MASSIVE cast…except we wont see any other them. The animated 8-episode series is a prequel to a 2001 cult comedy movie about the last day at a Jewish summer camp in 1981. (Judging by the title, you can guess why everyone is assuming this is a prequel.)

The writers of the movie David Wain and Michael Showalter also created the series. Voices include Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Showalter and Kevin Sussman.
