Netflix to Premiere ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’ on Aug. 4

Netflix will debut the latest in the Wet Hot American Summer series Aug. 4.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, from David Wain and Michael Showalter, will consist of eight episodes. 

Wain and Showalter were behind the 2001 cult-classic film, and the 2015 prequel, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which had eight episodes on Netflix.

The film did not pop in terms of box office, but its soon-to-be-famous cast and campy humor made it a cult hit.

In the film, Bradley Cooper’s Ben character said to his Camp Firewood mates: "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."

Returning cast includes Amy Poehler, Chris Meloni, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, Elizabeth Banks, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Schwartzman, Kristen Wiig, Michael Ian Black, Molly Shannon and Paul Rudd.

New cast members include Dax Shepard, Alyssa Milano and Adam Scott.
