Wet Hot American Summer: See the Star-Packed (NSFW) Trailer & Poster

If you’re at work, make sure to plug in your headphones before watching the new Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp trailer.

Why? Let’s just say that Amy Poehler and F-bombs look like they’re going to be very cozy bunkmates in the buzzed-about Netflix series.

The Parks and Recreation star is just one of many famous faces showing up for the start of the fictional Camp Firewood’s summer season, which will be the focus of Netflix’s 8-episode series based on the cult comedy film.

Bradley Cooper (The Hangover movies), Joe Lo Truglio (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Michael Ian Black (The State), Paul Rudd (Parks and Recreation), Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live), Janeane Garafalo (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) and Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU) all are on hand, as are camp newbies Jon Hamm (Mad Men), John Slattery (Mad Men), Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live), Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Michaela Watkins (Trophy Wife) and many more.

What else can you expect? Buddy boards, short shorts, a right-off-the-bat acknowledgement that the actors playing teenagers… aren’t, a forbidden practice called “salt-water taffying,” a dance direction that includes the phrase “lead with the crotch,” the camp nurse lending someone a helpful diaphragm hand and lots of Ben-McKinley awkwardness.

The series will be available in its entirety on July 31 at 12:01 AM PT.

Scan the official poster below to see who else you can spot, then press PLAY on the video at the top of the post to watch the inappropriate summer hijinks get underway.

    Can’t get enough Elizabeth Banks.

  2. Ron says:

    So. EXCITED! It’s been almost 15 years, and some of them look practically the same. (I swear Paul Rudd doesn’t age at all!)

  3. Joey says:

    Quick question…. Has Marguerite Moreau aged at all in the last 14 years?

    That being said, I don’t think there was a single thing about that trailer that I didn’t love.

  4. brandi says:

    Christopher Meloni LMAO! Loved that.

  5. Lisa says:

    I cannot wait for this

  6. Ronnie says:

    Is the actual movie available to watch on Netflix before the series’ debut? Last time I checked it wasn’t there, and I really want to see it!

    • TaMara says:

      I think it went away on July 1. :-( Which seems short sighted

    • misery chick says:

      Never saw the original but this trailer has me laughing/drooling-can’t wait! Want to see the original.first but won’t let that stop me from seeing this. Forgot Chris Meloni has a sense of humor, and Amy Poehler’s hair!!!!
      My life revisited…

    • Ron says:

      I just re-watched it on Netflix a couple weeks ago. And I just now checked to see if it was still available, and it’s showing up for streaming, so I’m gonna go ahead and say that yeah, it’s available for watching before the series’ debut.

    So will the prequel reveal how Jon Benjamin turned into a can of vegetables? I am so looking forward to this! Time to rewatch the movie, yet again.
