Wet Hot American Summer is back and on Netflix, get ready for 8 awesomely funny episodes! Follow the counselors and campers on their first day at Camp Firewood in the summer of 1981. Everyone you love is back and they added some new stars to the cast for this hilarious prequel.
Who are some of the new cast you may ask? Jason Schwartzman, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm to name a few. And they all do an excellent job with their characters.
David Wain and Michael Showalter wrote this awesomeness and Wain directed and also appears in the show. Wain had suggested that there may be a prequel to Wet Hot American Summer. The film would be set earlier in that same summer, and part of the joke would be that the cast, who were ten years too old to be playing their parts, would now be playing younger versions of those same roles, but this time be twenty years too old.
Finding out more of the back stories of these characters is just great, and all the new characters really spice things up. Also it is pretty hilarious finding out the origins of the talking can of mixed vegetables and the song Higher and Higher from the 2001 movie.
Do you have Netflix? If yes binge watch the crap out of this show, Hopefully we will get more in the future.
