Last summer a limited series prequel to the 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer, which was set on the last day of summer camp in 1981, arrived on Netflix titled Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The joke being that all of the actors who appeared in the original would be 15 years older despite the show taking place earlier. Now another eight-episode season is officially on the way, this time a sequel.
In the original movie, there’s a scene in which the camp attendees agree to meet back there a decade later to catch up. It took 16 years to get to it, but fans will finally be able to see how that meeting went down. Netflix has confirmed that Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will arrive in 2017.
You can check out a brief confirmation video including the above mentioned scene below.
In early 2002, the Boston Globe conducted an investigation on allegations of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. The Spotlight team’s coverage exposed a large cover-up within the church, that stretched far beyond just the city of Boston. It revealed that the scandal had spread nationwide. The Globe would then receive a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for their comprehensive coverage on the scandal that rocked the United States, but also forced the Catholic Church to make changes within their policy.
Now the real-life story has become the subject of a film. Spotlight will bring the story of the Pultizer Prize winning Boston Globe’s investigation to life. Directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win-Win, The Visitor), Spotlight stars Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Brian d’Arcy James, John Slattery, Liev Schreiberg, Stanley Tucci, and Billy Crudup.
Netflix has released another preview for Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day of Camp, the limited prequel series based on the 2001 cult hit comedy Wet Hot American Summer. All eight episodes of the series will be released on Netflix this Friday, July 31st.
