This all started as a 2001 movie, set on the last day of camp in 1981, which slowly became a cult classic comedy. In 2015, Netflix brought back the cast for "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," the hilarious prequel starring actors who were nearly 15 years older.
Now they're doing something that, age-wise, makes more sense: "Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later," a series of eight 30-minute episodes set in 1991, and scheduled to arrive in 2017. (We should probably expect an unhealthy dose of grunge and teen spirit.)
According to Netflix, David Wain and Michael Showalter will return as writers, with Wain also directing. There are no cast details at this point, but this series announcement video from Netflix is a big hint:
Of course we hope to see as many originals as possible, including Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, and Janeane Garofalo, plus "First Day of Camp" newbies like Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Josh Charles, Jason Schwartzman, and John Slattery. Maybe even Chris Pine?
