'Wet Hot American Summer' is returning to Netflix ... 10 years later
Wet Hot American Summer isn't done with Netflix yet. Following last year's return to Camp Firewood with the eight-part series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, we're going to jump forward in time for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the streaming platform announced today.
Every Wet Hot fan knows that the counselors were always planning to meet up for a 10-year reunion, starting at 9 so everyone could be there by 9:30. We got a very brief glimpse of it at the end of the movie, and now Netflix is going to give us so much more.
Just like First Day, there will be eight episodes, written by Michael Showalter and David Wain and directed by Wain. Hopefully they'll be able to convince the cast to return, too, but Netflix hasn't said who is signed on to star (the video announcement simply showed a clip from the original movie -- no new footage yet). The series will premiere in 2017.
