Report: Netflix Eyeing Wet Hot American Summer TV Series Starring Original Cast

Wet Hot American Summer NetflixAnyone up for a (long-awaited) trip back to Camp Firewood?

Netflix is interested in developing an original series based on the 2001 cult-classic comedy Wet Hot American Summer, our sister publication Variety is reporting, with original creators David Wain and Michael Showalter on board to executive-produce.

The plan is to reportedly have the original cast members film scenes over the course of a few days, and to have those scenes scattered throughout the season, meaning not everyone would appear in every episode.

In addition to Showalter, that original cast included big names like Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks, David Hyde Pierce and Michael Ian Black.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    This is some of the most amazing news I will ever have the pleasure of reading.

  2. Ang says:

    How funny, I’m watching the movie right now. Love the idea, will make me keep netflix.

  3. Riana says:

    Getting that cast together doesn’t seem like it would be easy

  4. Et al. says:

    Sounds similar to how they made season 4 of arrested development happen.

  5. Coal says:

    Why not ? Everything on Tv should not be Emmy winning material. How about some mindless fun viewing for once ?

  6. JASon says:

    Is this an April Fools joke? I guess part of the joke was that all the cast were in their early thirties playing 19 and 20 year olds. Does the joke still work if they’re in their mid forties?

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Good news. Movie is great.

  8. erin says:

    Wow. This is surprising and amazing

  12. McKinley says:

    If it premieres can we all agree it happens at 930? Because I have something at 11. I can’t move it, I’ve already changed it twice.

  13. DL says:

    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! One of my favorite movies of all time.

  14. Ted says:

    Hm, 2 stars I like a lot and 3 I despise. So, no.

  15. DavidSask says:

    This is not plausible both for looks for characters and money and time wise, lets be realistic people!

  16. L says:

    Cool cool cool.

  17. murley says:

    Will Jon Benjamin return as the can of vegetables?

  18. anice says:

    This would be epic! It is by far one of my favorite movies and would be great if the show had the original cast.
