‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Sequel Starts Production, Adds Alyssa Milano
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.
Per Deadline, Milano’s series regular character is being kept under wraps, becoming the second new cast member after Royal Pains alum Mark Feuerstein. The Ten Years Later sequel to 2001's original feature and last year’s First Day of Camp has now begun production, as confirmed by star Michael Ian Black:
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will pick up where the original 2001 movie left off, notably with the star-studded cast of campers and counselors meeting up for a ten-year reunion. Michael Showalter and David Wain will again write, with Wain onboard to direct the 8-episode, half-hour series premiering in 2017.
Thus far confirmed to return for Ten Years Later are Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon, Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Ian Black, Zak Orth, Marguerite Moreau, and Michael Showalter. Among the more recent additions, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Lake Bell and Josh Charles are also returning.
