Netflix Brings Back Cast For Prequel Series. David Wain’s 2001 cult classic, Wet Hot American Summer, will be getting its own Netflix series. According to the site Deadline, filming has already began for an 8-episode limited series based on the film. The best part of this breaking news is that the majority of the original cast will be returning and in true David Wain, odd-ball fashion, be playing much younger versions of themselves.

Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, “Wet Hot American Summer” follows a group of counselors who are each trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends. The entire summer of pent-up sexual frustrations, unresolved post-traumatic stress, pending separations and of course, the talent show, all weigh heavily on the minds and groins of counselors and campers alike. Directed by David Wain, the film stars Jacob Shoesmith-Fox, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Zak Orth, A. D. Miles, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Marisa Ryan, Joe Lo Truglio, and Elizabeth Banks

Considered at the time of its release to be a commercial and critical failure, as several members of the film’s cast went on to become stars, Wet Hot American Summer found a wider audience and is now considered a cult classic. The Netflix series does not currently have a release date.
