‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Is Now A Netflix Series, Entire Cast Returning


Remember the rumors of Wet Hot American Summer finally getting the sequel fans have been waiting for since 2001? Well, those dreams have died and been replaced with something even better: A limited run Netflix series.

According to Deadline, production is already underway for a Wet Hot American Summer series, which will likely premiere on Netflix in early 2016. The eight-part series will feature appearances from the entire original cast, including Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Michael Showalter and Kevin Sussman. No plot details have been revealed.

David Wain and Michael Showalter, the two creative minds behind the original film, are behind this series, with Wain also returning to direct. The two are executive producing alongside the film’s producer Howard Bernstein, Jonathan Stern and Peter Principato.

If I had to guess, I would wager the plot for this series will revolve around the promise the gang made at the end of the film. If you recall, the gang proposed a reunion that would take place several years later, and I’m fairly certain everyone was on board. You can view the scene in question below. We will bring you more on the WHAS series as soon as additional information becomes available.
