If you’re a fan of talking cans of vegetables, training sessions that take you higher and higher or really passionate make outs, then Netflix has good news for you.
Deadline has the word that director David Wain and the streaming service have finalized their deal for an eight-part Wet Hot American Summer TV series that will reunite the entire cast of the 2001 cult summer camp hit.
With a cast assembled from veterans of legendary MTV sketch comedy troupe The State and future superstars like Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler and Elizabeth Banks among others, the 1981-set film about the wild staff of a Jewish summer camp went from box office bomb to endlessly quotable hit over its home video life.
As with the original movie, the Wet Hot TV series will be co-written by Wain and fellow State alum Michael Showalter, and all episodes will be directed by Wain. The show follows previous Netflix revival Arrested Development onto the service and into an endless string of “Did it live up to the hype?” debates.
