Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster. Rivaling turnout for the Emmys and Oscars combined, the upcoming ‘SNL’ reunion will feature everyone from legendary alumni like Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Chevy Chase, to favorite hosts like Alec Baldwin, and even Taylor Swift, why not!
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.
These days 'SNL' movies are a bit few and far between (come on, 'MacGruber 2'!), but at least some of their success lives on with legendary classics like 'Wayne's World or 'The Blues Brothers.' There have been 11 'SNL' movies total over the course of the last 40 years, but how well do you think you know the late-night sketch comedy legend's cinematic history? Test your knowledge with the latest installment of ‘You Think You Know Movies?‘
Netflix has long since earned its reputation as the patron saint of canceled TV series, owing to its resurrections of both 'Arrested Development' and 'The Killing,' but the latest property pulled from the scrap heap is wet, hot, and altogether unexpected. Might Netflix look to reunite the A-list (and 40+) cast of cult classic 'Wet Hot American Summer' for a prequel TV series?
Huh. Alright then. Earlier today we learned a bit more about why NBC seems to have decided not to move forward on the Bryan Fuller-helmed 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane,' reportedly owing to disagreements over just how quirky and "Fuller" the world outside the actual 'Munsters' should be. Given 'Hannibal's' latest round of castings, including typically comedic performer and 'SNL' vet Molly Shannon, might Hannibal Lecter's world be in for the same treatment?
