Netflix will be making even more episodes of “Wet Hot American Summer,” the adult-comedy franchise that the show resurrected last year. Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” was a fantastic success for the video-streaming service, and reunited the cast as a prequel to the hit film.
The new limited-season run will take place 10 years after the events of the original film, allowing fans to see what happened to their favorite campers and counselors.
The new Netflix original series will go by the appropriate title “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later,” and will most likely bring back many of the same faces from the first two installments. The series will include eight all-new 30-minute episodes and is set to premiere in 2017.
The series will be written by Michael Showalter and David Wain and Wain will direct. Executive Producers for “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later” are Michael Showalter, David Wain, Peter Principato, Jonathan Stern and Howard Bernstein.
