'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later' Coming To Netflix

Netflix is going back to summer camp — 10 years later!

Variety has reported that the popular streaming service has greenlit Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, which will again be set at Camp Firewood, but there’s a catch.

Netflix’s upcoming series will take place 10 years after the original 2001 film, and should not be considered a sequel to First Day of Camp, the eight-episode series that streamed on Netflix last July and featured many of the film’s original stars, including Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd and Bradley Cooper.

Ten Years Later will include eight all-new 30-minute episodes and is slated for a 2017 premiere.  However, no casting information is currently available.  The series will be written by the original creative team behind Wet Hot American Summer, Michael Showalter and David Wain, with Wain once again directing.  Executive producers are Showalter, Wain, Peter Principato, Jonathan Stern and Howard Bernstein.
I first became familiar with this property when First Day of Camp initially released, having watched the first episode before Imhad ever even heard of the film.  It wasn't until I was talking with a friend of mine about that first episode that I found out that there had been a movie first, so, obviously, I had to check it out...and it was awesome.

It was definitely a movie ahead of its time, doing a great job spoofing all of those great 80's camp movies.  And the cast was fantastic.  The prequel series, First Day of Camp, managed to bring back that hilarious energy, largely due to the fact that pretty much the entire cast returned for it.  

Hopefully they'll get at least some of those actors back to reprise their characters and bring a nice cohesion to the franchise.
