The once popular movie-turned-Netflix-series, is coming back with 8 all-new episodes later this year.

Called “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later” the series will be an eight-part limited series event featuring the same amazing cast that created the first two installments. There will be a few new faces in the mix as well, some of which are seen in the new trailer that was released earlier today.
