New, 8 comments

And filming is already underway

Wet Hot American Summer is finally coming to Netflix. After reports circulated last year that the streaming service was looking to revive the 2001 cult comedy as a TV series, Deadline now reports that filming is already underway. Writer Jake Fogelnest subsequently confirmed the report on Twitter. According to Deadline, the Netflix-exclusive series will span eight episodes, and will include much of the original cast, including the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, and Paul Rudd. David Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote the film, are reportedly leading the new series as well.

This isn't the first time that Netflix has brought back a cult comedy series, as the company launched a fourth season of Arrested Development back in 2013, after the show was cancelled. Similarly, Yahoo is planning to bring back troubled series Community for a sixth season. There's no word yet on when the new Wet Hot American Summer will make its Netflix debut.
