'Wet Hot American Summer' prequel may be coming to Netflix
If you’re looking to revive your cult classic, Netflix appears to be the place to make it happen.
Following the success of Arrested Development‘s Netflix resurrection, David Wain and Michael Showalter are in talks with the streaming service to reboot their summer camp comedy Wet Hot American Summer. The 10-episode series would be a prequel to the film and include much of the original cast, according to Variety.
The retro farce featured an impressive roster of stars, many of whom were still up-and-coming when the film debuted in 2001, including: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Joe Lo Truglio. The prequel would focus on the characters as high-schoolers, despite the fact that many of the cast members are now in their 40s.
EW’s requests for comment from Netflix were not immediately returned.
