Wet Hot American Summer: Netflix Orders New Edition Set Ten Years Later

Wet Hot American Summer is headed back to the future.

Netflix has ordered a second iteration of the raunchy comedy franchise, this one set in 1991 — 10 years after the original film. Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will consist of eight 30-minute episodes, and is set to bow in 2017. (Funny story: The new sequel-esque edition was actually foreshadowed in the 2001 movie; press PLAY above to see for yourself.)

Executive producers David Wain and Michael Showalter, who penned last year’s prequel-themed First Day of Camp, will once again write all eight episodes.

Wain previously told TVLine that he and Showalter would “love to keep going,” adding that “camp is a very fertile area for so many. For us, I don’t think we’ll ever run out of stories to tell about these characters.”

Casting for chapter deux will be announced at a later date, but it’s probably safe to say that most, if not all, of your faves will be back.

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!

    YOOOOO. Please please please tell me they can get the whole cast back together again for this one. I know season 1 was a scheduling nightmare with all the super famous cast members (shout-out to Bradley Cooper’s DJ Ski Mask stand in lmao).

  3. Awesome news. Hopefully the whole cast will be back

    SHOW ME THE FEVER, INTO THE FIRE! Yeeeeeeaaaah! Hope more of the cast is able to be on set at the same time this time, but they made it work before and honestly, the few times it was obvious it kind of fit the show’s humor.
