Jai Courtney has joined the cast of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later as Garth MacArthur, EW has confirmed.

The series, which Netflix announced in April, is a sequel to 2015’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which is a prequel reboot of the 2001 cult classic.

The Australian Courtney, best known for his roles in Suicide Squad and the Divergent series, joins a franchise of big names, including Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, and Elizabeth Banks, whose returning characters have not yet been confirmed. They were, however, implied to appear again at some point at the end of First Day of Camp, when Cooper’s character suggests that in 10 years, they meet again “to see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.”

Ten Years Later will consist of eight 30-minute episodes penned and executive-produced by David Wain and Michael Showalter, the masterminds behind the original film. It is set to premiere in 2017.
