Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp trailer: See new look at Netflix prequel

Posted on


With the First Day of Camp just over a month away, it’s never too early to start prepping. 

Fortunately, Netflix has made it quite easy. On Tuesday, the streaming service released its first trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, David Wain and Michael Showalter’s eight-episode prequel to the 2001 big-screen cult comedy Wet Hot American SummerMade to look like a promo video for Camp Firewood (they even have gourmet chef!) on a well-worn VHS tape, this H. Jon Benjamin-narrated trailer can be viewed below over and over again. You’ll notice that the entire cast is back—Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, etc.—along with a couple of new faces. And if you look at your screen carefully around the 30-second mark, you just might see the start of a beautiful relationship.

First Day of Camp debuts on July 31.
