Netflix ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Sequel Adds New, Returning Campers
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.
Per Deadline, Prison Break and Royal Pains star Mark Feuerstein will join the Ten Years Later ensemble as a new character, described cryptically as “a friendly, hard-working guy and a core member of the group who has definitely always been there every step of the way. In the ten years since that infamous summer, he’s now a powerful business man, successful and in love.”
Also, separately confirmed is that Marisa Ryan will return to the role of Abby.
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.
And for good measure, First Day of Camp returned the expansive cast of Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon, David Hyde Pierce, Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, Zak Orth, Marguerite Moreau, and Michael Showalter. Added into the mix were Michael Cera, Weird Al, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Lake Bell, Jordan Peele, Randall Park, Jayma Mays, Michaela Watkins, Rob Huebel, Josh Charles, Richard Schiff, Paul Scheer and director David Wain himself.
