Don your extremely (and unnecessary) high waisted mini shorts, grow out your bangs and practice your scales, because Wet Hot American Summer is coming back (10 years later!), which means we’re taking a trip back to Camp Firewood.
It’s been a long and sad 16 years since we last visited Camp Firewood in the masterpiece movie, Wet Hot American Summer. This epic film followed the lives of some pretty awesome (and some pretty odd) camp counselors during the summer, and returned to our screens in the form of an eight-episode series back in 2015.
Thankfully, it’s coming back into our lives again in the form of a brand new eight-episode Netflix series called Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later! The series will follow the camp counselors as they attend their 10-year Camp Firewood Reunion (which you’ll remember was mentioned in the original movie. Ahhhhh, it all makes sense now!)
Now, the show has released their first sneak-peek into the new show, and have given us an awesome character photos. Here’s the lowdown.
McKinley (Michael Ian Black) is like a good cheese or a fine wine – because he has just improved with age. Yep, throw a cute grandpa sweater on a good stilton and you get the new dad, McKinley.
Katie (Marguerite Moreau) is returning in all of her designer-clothes glory to Camp Firewood as a bad boss lady, who works as a high-profile and high-powered makeup company executive. You get it, girl.
Abby (Marisa Ryan) will be rocking up to Camp Firewood in the ultimate ‘90s get-up (#goals) as one of the most popular sex columnists around. Ooo-er.
Blake (Josh Charles) hasn’t changed a bit – apart from the fact he has increased his snobby neck scarf wardrobe. He’s still as preppy and pompous as ever, and still working at Camp Tigerclaw.
Coop (Michael Showalter) is a struggling romantic writer who just can’t seem to finish his novel. Perhaps a stay at Camp Firewood will inspire him? Or not…
Courtney (Kristen Wiig) is exhibiting all of our crimped hair goals in this photo – but hasn’t changed a lot, considering she’s still vying for the attention of Blake (eugh).
Victor (Ken Marino) is still able to make us go ‘awwwwww.’ Victor looks pretty much the same as he did 16 years ago, and rumor has it his errr physical and intimate (shifty eyes) situation is the same too…
Beth (Janeane Garofalo), the director of Camp Firewood, is feeling like her years of bossing around the camp counselors is coming to an end.
Yaron (David Wain) will be returning to Camp Firewood in all his hippy glory, with his tie-die smocks and rosary beads, imparting wisdom among the camp counselors. We all need a Yaron in our lives.
JJ (Zak Orth) doesn’t want to leave the past behind him as he continued to take pictures of the gang on his retro (and pretty cool) ‘90s Hi8 video camera. You do you, JJ.
Yep, Greg (Jason Schwartzman) has somehow come back to life. Magic.
Andy (the legend that is Paul Rudd) is still rocking the long hair, leather jacket and bad-boy image, and still rocking the idea that he’s the coolest guy to ever walk the earth. Which, of course, he is.
Deegs (Skyler Gisondo) will be joining the old recruits at Camp Firewood this year, as the rival cool guy to Andy. Watch out.
Claire (Sarah Burns) was apparently in the original movie, but we never saw her. Nevertheless, she will be returning to Camp Firewood as JJ’s best friend. Yay.
Mark (Mark Feuerstein) will also be making an appearance as Claire’s high-profile Wall-Street boyfriend (sporting a very nice black eye).
ADAM SCOTT WILL ALSO BE AT CAMP IN A SUPER SECRET ROLE. THIS IS SO EXCITING.
Ahhhhh, we can’t wait. Tune into the new series of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later on August 4.
