An eight-episode series will launch in 2017
Netflix have announced another spin-off from Wet Hot American Summer, entitled Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.
The eight-episode series is due in 2017, meaning its arrival will come sixteen years after the movie original. Like the 2015 prequel First Day Of Camp (which was also an eight-episode series), much of the film’s original cast is expected to return, though casting is yet to be confirmed.
Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler were amongst the original cast. Rudd later said the budget for the original was so low that he couldn’t recall whether he was paid for his participation at all.
