Set in 1991, the sequel series fulfills a seed planted in a post-credit scene in the original film -- based on a joke from earlier in the movie -- wherein the campers and staff of Camp Firewood reunite 10 years after their first summer together, as adults.
Well, as promised, the eight-episode series will deliver on that premise, with all the faces you love from the original film and prequel series, in addition to plenty of newcomers. The State and Stella alumni David Wain and Michael Showalter wrote the series, and Wain directed all eight episodes.
