The cast of Wet Hot American Summer, which starred 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, are all returning to summer camp in an 8-episode limited series for Netflix with David Wain set to direct and co-write with Showalter.
And according to Wain, the limited series will actually be a prequel to the 2001 cult film which was set in 1981, “The actors were already anywhere from ten to 15 years too old in the first place when we shot it in 2000. So now they’re 14 years older than that. You can all decide for yourself whether you think that’s funny or not.”
