Attention all Netflix binge-watchers: Netflix just announced 11 of their original series that are coming back and the dates that they're premiering.

So, without further ado, here are the Netflix series that we love that are coming back and some new ones that we can start to fall in love with.

Orange is the New Black
Ever since Piper and her fellow convicts at Litchfield Penitentiary hit Netflix in 2013, Orange is the New Black has taken the world by storm.
