Netflix orders a new Wet Hot American Summer series set 10 years in the future

At the end of 2001's cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer, Bradley Cooper's character says to the rest of the camp counselors, "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." They all agree to meet in a decade, at exactly 9:30AM. It seemed like the perfect setup for a sequel, which never came to fruition — until now. Netflix has just ordered an eight-episode Wet Hot American Summer installment called Ten Years Later, Deadline reports.

Last summer, Netflix debuted the first WHAS follow-up, First Day of Camp, which rewound the clock to when the main characters were still just teenage campers. David Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote both the original movie and the prequel, will return again to write, with Wain set to direct. Deadline reports that almost the entire original cast — including Janeane Garofalo, Christopher Meloni, Michael Ian Black, Amy Poehler, and Bradley Cooper — will also appear in the sequel.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is set to arrive on Netflix sometime in 2017.
