In “Wet Hot American Summer,” the gang promised that in 10 years, they’d reunite to see where they all ended up. And now that reunion is finally happening.
Netflix released the first trailer for “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later,” an eight-part limited series, and surprisingly, a lot has changed.
For starters, Andy (Paul Rudd) has a new much longer hair do. Then there’s Susie (Amy Poehler), who looks like she’s moved away from her uptight persona.
“Wet Hot American Summer” has gained a cult following since its 2001 premiere. While most of the cast — then made up of relative unknowns — have gone on to bigger things, all came back for the 2015 series “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” which was set before the events of the film but featured the cast almost 15 years older.
Now “Ten Years Later” depicts the cast a decade years after the film, although they’re only technically two years older than when they appeared in the prequel series.
Most of the returning cast, as introduced in the original film and on the Netflix prequel series, are returning.
That includes (takes a deep breath) in alphabetical order: A.D. Miles, Amy Poehler, Beth Dover, Chris Meloni, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, David Wain, Elizabeth Banks, Eric Nenninger, H. Jon Benjamin, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Schwartzman, Joe Lo Truglio, John Early, Josh Charles, Ken Marino, Kristen Wiig, Lake Bell, Marguerite Moreau, Marisa Ryan, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Molly Shannon, Nina Hellman, Paul Rudd, Rich Sommer, Sarah Burns and Zak Orth.
A glaring omission is Bradley Cooper, who played Ben in the film and even returned for the prequel series.
In addition to that giant cast are even more actors who are joining for “Ten Years Later,” such as (takes deeper breath), Skyler Gisondo, Samm Levine (who provided a voice in the original film but was never on camera), Mark Feuerstein, Marlo Thomas, Joey Bragg, Jai Courtney, Dax Shepard, Alyssa Milano and Adam Scott.
The series debuts on Aug. 4.
