Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming Wet Hot American Summer series – and it’s a gloriously retro affair.
The show, which spans eight episodes, is a prequel to David Wain’s 2001 summer camp comedy, which took place on the final day of camp in 1981. Despite never being released in UK cinemas or on DVD, the film has amassed something of a cult following, thanks to its cast full of stars before they became famous.
The new series will take us back to Camp Firewood, a camp that is more than just a summer camp: it’s a way of life. The story will pick up events on the first day of Camp Firewood’s famous 1981 summer season, with Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd and more reprising their original roles – despite now being 14 years older than they were when they first played them.
