Wet Hot American Summer is returning to Netflix in the form of an eight episode prequel series. The original film took place on the last day of camp at Camp Firewood in 1981, and the new prequel series takes place on the first day of camp. All eight episodes will be available to stream on Netflix July 31, 2015. The original film featured a huge cast, with some of the actors including Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, and more. All of the original cast will be returning for the series, and as director David Wain says, the show “is a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”
