Whatever happened to the campers and counselors from Wet Hot American Summer? Netflix is answering that question with the new series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. The half-hour comedy series will premiere sometime in 2017, with eight episodes focusing on the reunion of the WHAS gang. Teasing the new series, a clip from the original Wet Hot American Summer movie was released featuring Ben (Bradley Cooper) asking his camp friends to check in with each other in ten years. “Let’s all promise that in ten years from today, we’ll meet again, and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into,” says Ben. Discussion then follows as to what time of day they should meet up, and it’s decided 9:30am makes the most sense.
The entire main cast of the 2001 comedy film Wet Hot American Summer reunited for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp which premiered in 2015. Netflix hasn’t confirmed who will return for WHAS: Ten Years Later, but it’s highly likely most of the cast including Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Zak Orth, Michael Ian Black, and Elizabeth Banks will be back.
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is written and executive produced by Michael Showalter and David Wain, with Wain also committed to directing. Peter Principato, Jonathan Stern and Howard Bernstein are also on board as executive producers.
