There’s always a stupid reason why the couple in a romantic comedy can’t be together until the closing credits. An ex-girlfriend or boyfriend appears at the most narratively conveniently moment, or one of the leads becomes a ghost, or there’s a misunderstanding that could easily be cleared up if the characters just sat and talked to one another for literally 15 seconds. One of the best things about The Big Sick is that the obstacles (plural, there are several) facing this relationship are real and relatable and believable and hugely serious.
It isn’t terribly likely that Wet Hot American Summer will gather its all-star cast for an additional Netflix season beyond the Ten Years Later sequel, so stars and producers David Wain, Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black will need something else to do. Enter TBS, who booked the trio on a Moon Cruise for their latest parody series.
Michael Showalter is best known for his work alongside David Wain and Michael Ian Black on projects like Wet Hot American Summer and last year’s criminally underseen They Came Together. But Showalter also has a separate filmmaking career, and he’s finally back with his solo follow-up to 2005's surprisingly sweet indie romance The Baxter. The trailer for his latest effort has arrived, touting an impossibly adorable and quirky Sally Field as an administrative clerk who falls for her new — and much younger — supervisor, played by New Girl’s Max Greenfield.
No one knew for certain if Wet Hot American Summer could pull off its prequel reunion series on Netflix, but by the full trailer, the First Day of Camp looks like everything we’ve dreamed. See the star-studded cast reunited (and joined by some other ridiculously famous folk) for our first official trailer, along with a slick new poster!
As if any disbelief over Netflix’s impending ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival miniseries lingered, the streaming service has already taken us back to Camp Firewood to rejoin the cast. See the first teaser for Netflix’s apt and newly-named ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,’ confirming the entire cast’s return as early as this summer!
It’s officially official, Netflix has become the patron saint of revivals. After the streaming service pulled a dead dove out of the hat to revive ‘Arrested Development,’ star-studded 2001 cult classic ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ has been set as a limited series revival, with near of the entire cast set to return. This news tastes like a burger, but we still like it.
It’s been some time since we’d heard that Netflix had potentially lined up a prequel series to David Wain and Michael Showalter’s star-studded cult classic ‘Wet Hot American Summer.’ Most of the cast has been said to show interest in a return as well, and now it seems production may move forward on a mini-series as early as January 2015.
Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter of 'Stella' and MTV's 'The State' fame are at it again with this new faux-infomercial series for Adult Swim, and you can watch the first full installment right now. So you should do that.
