Netflix has shared an ’80s-style teaser trailer for its forthcoming comedy series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp is conceived as a prequel to the cult 2001 comedy film Wet Hot American Summer, which was directed by David Wain from a screenplay he co-wrote with Michael Showalter. Wain and Showalter also teamed up to create the eight-episode prequel series, with Wain directing once again and Showalter serving as show runner.
The vast majority of the Wet Hot American Summer cast have returned for the sequel series, including Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce and Molly Shannon. Meanwhile, newcomers Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman, Lake Bell and Randall Park have all signed up for guest roles. Many of them appear in the teaser trailer below, which features a voiceover by Bob’s Burgers star H Jon Benjamin.
All eight episodes of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp will launch on Netflix in all territories on July 31.
