Netflix has just announced release dates for two of its most anticipated shows, Orange Is The New Black and Dear White People

OITNB returns for its fifth season in June after the insane finale of the fourth. Danielle Brooks recently revealed that the season will take place over the course of three days as the ladies of Litchfield deal with the loss of Poussey and the riot taking place. 

The streaming service's Dear White People will drop in April. Based on the popular film of the same name, Dear White People explores race and privilege with humor. 

Orange Is The New Black premieres June 9, while Dear White People debuts April 28. 

Needless to say, we're so ready for both of these shows to drop!
