Wet Hot American Summer finally has a second season, of sorts.
Netflix is moving forward with a new chapter of Wet Hot American Summer, ordering sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, with eight episodes to stream in 2017.
Ten Years Later will serve as a follow-up to Netflix’s 2015 prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which survives the Cancellation Reaper by proxy.
Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote the movie and the limited series, are back as writers of Ten Years Later, with Wain once again directing. There is no casting information yet on the new Wet Hot American Summer installment but, like First Day of Camp, which reassembled virtually the entire original cast, with Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, Michael Ian Black, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Zak Orth, Judah Friedlander and Showalter among those reprising their roles, the new installment will likely again feature a slew of original cast members.
The streaming network alluded at Cooper, Poehler, Banks, Showalter and Zak Orth coming back by featuring them in the original scene that teases Ten Years Later.
Stay tuned as we continually monitor the survival status of the Wet Hot American Summer franchise…
