Wet Hot American Summer is one of the best things that has ever happened to this world. And I mean ever, throughout the whole of human history, maybe even before. Normally I’m not so amped on years-after-the-fact reboots and the like, but I’m damn pumped up for Netflix’s upcoming eight-episode series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and this new trailer does nothing to derail my enthusiasm.
All your favorites, and a few choice newcomers, are back for more adventures at Camp Firewood. Though it comes 14-years later, this is still a prequel, and though this video is just a tease, it’s a pitch perfect one. Here’s what they have to say about the limited series:
The counselors are confirmed in this teaser for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, a limited 8-episode series coming to Netflix just in time for summer. Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter are among some of the cast joining the series, which tells the story of the first day of Camp Firewood's famous summer season, now fourteen years after the film's debut. The series is directed by David Wain and co-written by Wain and Michael Showalter.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp drops this summer. If you’ll excuse me, I need to go fondle my sweater.
