Plus a few more shows!

Netflix took the time during its panel at the Television Critics Association conference on Sunday to announce the premiere dates for a batch of upcoming shows including Orange is the New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars The Office's Ellie Kemper and was nominated for an Emmy, returns for its second season on April 15, while Orange is the New Black returns for its fourth season on June 17, according to a press release. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's Grace and Frankie will also return for its second season on May 6. On top of it all, Netflix released a new trailer for the upcoming fourth season of House of Cards, which can be seen below.

All of this is a part of Netflix's plan to double the amount of original content subscribers will have access to. During its panel, executives announced the network will deliver over 600 hours of original content this year and in order to do so, have invested $6 billion into producing the various TV shows and films.

Netflix still won't release official numbers on how many people are watching its movies and programs, but executives did say that numbers previously reported by NBC were inaccurate.

Netflix recently made its service available in 130 countries, including Russia and India, but did confirm it would start actively shutting down proxy services to stop subscribers from using Netflix services outside of their own region.

Currently, all original Netflix programming will be made available to subscribers in each country.
