Summer’s a great time to go outside. Or it’s a great time to stay inside and watch a ton of Netflix in air conditioning. The streaming service has announced a series of premiere dates that may make you choose the latter. 

Orange Is the New Black will come back on June 12. You’ll have a little over a month to finish the third season of the prison dramedy before Netflix launches Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp on July 17. Also on the slate: Sense8, from the Wachowskis, premiering June 5, and Canadian collaboration Between, starring Sam & Cat‘s Jennette McCurdy, premiering in May. 

If you’re looking for one-off entertainment rather than binging opportunities stand-up specials Chris D’Elia: Incorrigible and Jen Kirkman: I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) launch April 17 and May 22, respectively, and documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? will be available June 26.
