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.
Wet Hot American Summer
Just when we thought Jai Courtney was officially the movies’ responsibility to make happen, Netflix brings him boomeranging back. The Suicide Squad star has officially joined Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later in role that feels oddly true-to-life.
It’d take a day and a half to list all the stars of Wet Hot American Summer’s decade span, so why not shoot for more? Latest to join the Camp Firewood team is that of Alyssa Milano, as Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later officially commences production with returning cast.
We saw the First and final day of camp, and now it’s time for Wet Hot American Summer to take us Ten Years Later. Netflix’s sequel series to the 2001 cult classic (and its prequel series) is getting underway, setting a Royal Pains star and a familiar camper as the first official confirmed cast.
That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel First Day of Camp pulled off a herculean enough task in reuniting such a broad and prolific cast, few necessarily expected to pull it off again so soon with a Ten Years Later sequel series. According to original star and Stella partner Michael Ian Black however, near of the entire cast has again signed on to reprise their roles.
The unadulterated commitment of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series First Day of Camp helped the star-studded David Wain comedy avoid the typical reunion pitfalls, enough that we’re going to do again! Yes, Camp Firewood will return to complete its Wet Hot American Summer with a proper sequel series, this time picking up Ten Years Later.
Half the gag of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival lies in actors having (visibly) aged an additional 14 years since the 2001 cult classic, despite playing the same characters on their First Day of Camp. Now, a new featurette for Netflix revival sees the cast reflecting on the decade-plus gap, including that mystery which eludes us all: Why doesn’t Paul Rudd age?
Apart from the gargantuan task of reassembling the stars of Wet Hot American Summer for Netflix’s First Day of Camp, we have to wonder if the new series could recapture that same chemistry. Wonder no more, as Elizabeth Banks headlines the first official clip of our return to Camp Firewood, and things are getting Wet Hot, and perhaps American already. Also, Summer.
If all the teen sex on display through the original Wet Hot American Summer wasn’t enough to fondle your sweaters, imagine Camp Firewood at the start of the season. Or rather, listen in by Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’s new Netflix motion poster. Headphones may be advised.
