Like so many other cult classics, 2001’s Wet Hot American Summer wasn’t exactly well-received at the time of its release. Critically panned and a box office failure, David Wain and Michael Showalter’s hilarious story of a fictional Maine summer camp has enjoyed an unexpected afterlife — thanks, in large part, to its ensemble cast and the fact that it included the likes of Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler (not to mention Judah Friedlander, Law & Order: SVU vet Christopher Meloni and Archer himself, H. Jon Benjamin. Now, following the success of last year’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Netflix is taking another trip to Camp Firewood, announcing yet another Wet Hot American Summer series. Dubbed Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the series will presumably be set in 1991 (the film took place in 1981) and will once again be written by Wain and Showalter with Wain returning to the director’s chair. And, though a cast has yet to be announced, the teaser above would suggest that the likes of Cooper, Banks, Poehler, Michael Ian Black and Marguerite Moreau are all onboard.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will debut sometime next year with eight all-new 30-minute episodes.
