More details have emerged for the cult comedy prequel series.
Get ready for another stay at Camp Firewood! Netflix has officially confirmed the cast for a new 8-episode limited series based on the 2001 film, 'Wet Hot American Summer' via a short teaser video. Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, the movie followed a group of counselors trying to complete their unfinished business before the end of the day. Though a box office failure, the silly satirical comedy has since become a cult classic.
The returning cast members include 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. Despite being produced fourteen years after the original film's premiere, the show will serve as a prequel to the movie and will tell the story of the first day of Camp Firewood's famous summer season. The series is directed by David Wain and co-written by Wain and Michael Showalter. An exact release date has not been announced, but all eight episodes are expected to start streaming on Netflix this summer.
A monthly Netflix subscription currently starts at $7.99 for SD streaming, $8.99 for HD streaming, and $11.99 for Ultra HD streaming. The service is available on a variety of smart TVs and media players, including the Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Roku 3, Apple TV and Chromecast.
