First-Look Photos and Trailer: Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’
Remember when Bradley Cooper’s Wet Hot American Summer character, Ben, said, “Let’s all promise that ten years from today, we’ll meet again and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into?” Well, ten years later is here. And not everyone has blossomed. On Thursday, Netflix released the debut trailer for its upcoming eight-part series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, which teases the progress of the Camp Firewood crew as they reunite for the promised ten-year reunion.
Here’s what we know from the clip. It’s 1991, and a power-suit-wearing Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) hosts a local show called “Puff Stuff.” A non-plussed McKinley (Michael Ian Black) is toting a baby. Andy (Paul Rudd) has even longer hair and the munchies. Katie (Marguerite Moreau) excels at giving direction, but struggles with clarity. Victor’s (Ken Marino) hair is still naturally curly and, if we’re not mistaken, he’s the male version of Piper Perabo’s Coyote Ugly character. Gene (Christopher Meloni) lives in a camper and senses something familiar when he’s introduced to Gail’s (Molly Shannon) daughter. Amy Poehler’s Susie shows up in full Madonna regalia, toting some bubbly and ready to rage, bitches.
And everyone is distressed when Janeane Garofalo’s Beth announces she’s selling their beloved camp.
A.D. Miles, Beth Dover, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, David Wain, H. Jon Benjamin, Jason Schwartzman, Joe Lo Truglio, John Early, Lake Bell, Marisa Ryan, Michael Showalter, Sarah Burns and Zak Orth round out the returning cast.
Ten Years Later also boasts an impressive roster of new additions, including Alyssa Milano, Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains), Marlo Thomas, Dax Shepard, Skyler Gisondo (Santa Clarita Diet), Samm Levine, Joey Bragg, Jai Courtney — and Poehler’s Parks and Recreation spouse Adam Scott.
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later launches globally Friday, Aug. 4, on Netflix. In the meantime, click through the gallery above for a look at your Firewood favorites circa 1991.
