An eight-episode series sequel to the 2001 cult comedy film “Wet Hot American Summer” may sound like one of the stranger ideas that Netflix has ever had, but it just got infinitely more awesome. Deadline reports that the series has already started filming, with “virtually its entire ensemble cast returning.” We have no idea who from the original cast is included in that “virtually” bit, but that’s a lot of star power to choose from. The original film starred some notable names like Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Raul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Ken Marion, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon and David Hyde Pierce. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
I can’t believe it, but it’s actually happening…
