“Hey, let’s all promise that in 10 years from today, we’ll meet again, and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.” –Ben (Bradley Cooper), Wet Hot American Summer
Lo and behold, that’s exactly what David Wain plans to do with Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has ordered eight new episodes that will check in on the counselors of Camp Firewood a decade later.
Once again, Wain and star Michael Showalter will write the series with the former set to direct. The two will also executive produce alongside Peter Principato, Jonathan Stern, and Howard Bernstein. Now, they just need to look at a calendar and figure out how they’ll align all the stars again.
Currently, Wain is working on a National Lampoon biopic for Netflix titled, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, which stars everyone from Domhnall Gleeson to Joel McHale, Will Forte to John Gemberling, and Rick Glassman to Jon Daly. Should be a blast.
In the meantime, you can check out our exhaustive interview with Wet Hot composer Craig Wedren, who had a few ideas for a wintry sequel. Or, you can revisit last year’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which is currently streaming on Netflix.
As for me, I’m gonna go fondle my sweaters.
