Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Reunites the Weirdos of Camp Firewood — Watch First Trailer

As promised, the Camp Firewood ’81 gang is reuniting 10 years after their infamously strange summer together — and, surprise, things have only gotten stranger.

Netflix on Thursday released the official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, reuniting the cast of 2015’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp — which, itself, was a prequel of 2001’s Wet Hot American Summer — for another season of debauchery, confusion and, of course, talking cans of mixed vegetables. The eight-part series drops Friday, Aug. 4.

Among the latest developments: Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) is working as a TV news anchor; McKinley (Michael Ian Black) has created the world’s cutest baby; Gene (Christopher Meloni) may or may not be the father of Gail’s (Molly Shannon) bandana-sporting daughter; Victor (Ken Marino), still rocking a gorgeous perm, is now working as a cowboy stripper of some sort; and Beth (Janeane Garofalo) is selling the camp.

If you went “wait, what?!” to that last update, you’re not alone. Andy (Paul Rudd) and Katie (Marguerite Moreau) make it their personal mission to keep Camp Firewood alive, though Andy’s part of the plan involves some “tongue” and “butt” stuff that Katie (claims she) isn’t down for.

Hit PLAY on the trailer above to enjoy three minutes of unadulterated nonsense — including a musical performance by Kristen Wiig that I need to see more of — then drop a comment with your thoughts below.

  1. That’s crazy, I loved it

    Where is Bradley Cooper?

    • Jim says:

      If they only managed to get him for a single scene, they probably wouldn’t ruin it by showing it in the trailer. I would be surprised if he didn’t come film at least something for it. He’s a solid guy, he would go out of his way to try and make some time in his schedule for it even if he really had to bend over backwards to do it.

  3. Jerry says:

    I had no idea this even started filming so it’s a real pleasant surprise to see it’s coming out in six weeks!

  4. Will says:

    Does Bradley Cooper’s absence and lack of credit mean McKinley’s love is not going to be coming back?

  5. Jonathan A says:

    Yeah where is Bradley Cooper? Was he not available to come back per scheduling issues? lame

  6. Joey Padron says:

    The trailer for the new season looks good and funny. Sad Bradley Cooper couldn’t be in the new season.

  7. Cas says:

    Wait so the prequel was filmed when the actors were 15 years older? I watched the original but never the prequel but I would find it odd they are so much older when it was supposed to be set before the original.

      This is what bothers you? Not the insanity of the entire movie? I have watched the original movie 3 times and I have yet to see why people like this so much.

    • John036 says:

      Them being (much) older when they filmed the prequel is part of the joke

    • Jim says:

      It’s very much a source of humor in the prequel. If you liked the movie, you’ll really like the series.
