‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Sequel Series ‘Ten Years Later’ Set at Netflix
The unadulterated commitment of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series First Day of Camp helped the star-studded David Wain comedy avoid the typical reunion pitfalls, enough that we’re going to do again! Yes, Camp Firewood will return to complete its Wet Hot American Summer with a proper sequel series, this time picking up Ten Years Later.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will pick up where the original 2001 movie left off, notably with the star-studded cast of campers and counselors meeting up for a ten-year reunion. No word on returning cast at such an early stage, though Michael Showalter and David Wain will again write, with Wain onboard to direct.
First Day of Camp returned the expansive cast of Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon, David Hyde Pierce, Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, Zak Orth, Marguerite Moreau, and Michael Showalter. Added into the mix were Michael Cera, Weird Al, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Lake Bell, Randall Park, Jayma Mays, Michaela Watkins, Rob Huebel, Josh Charles, Richard Schiff, Paul Scheer and director David Wain himself.
