Netflix Lines Up ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’

Netflix Lines Up 'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later'

When you have $5 billion dollars in your pocket earmarked for original content, you can indulge in off the beaten path fare, and Netflix are gearing up to make fans of the cult comedy “Wet Hot American Summer” happy (again). After launching “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp” last year, they’re gearing up another return to Camp Firewood.

The network has announced “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later,” which as you’ve probably guessed from the title, will be set a decade after the 2001 movie, fulfilling the promise made by Bradley Cooper‘s Ben that was made at the end of that film for the gang to reunite. 

There’s no word yet on who will return, but given that David Wain and Michael Showalter were able to get the principal players back for ‘First Day Of Camp,’ chances are they’ll be able to do it again. And ‘Ten Years Later’ won’t premiere until 2017, so plenty of time for schedules among all the actors to be worked out, so they can return for the new series which will be eight episodes long.

Are you ready for more “Wet Hot American Summer”? Let us know below.
