The Teaser for ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Series is Here!

The rumors are true! The teaser for Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer” reboot is finally here.

The eight-part series based on the Jewiest camp movie ever made will take place on the first day of camp during the summer of 1981. Fans of the the original (and if you’re not, just stop reading) will know that it took place on the last day of camp, that very same summer.

So, basically Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Janeane Garofalo, Christopher Meloni, David Hyde Pierce, and Bradley Cooper need to play younger versions of their 2001 selves. Good thing regular people things like aging don’t exist in Hollywood.

If the teaser is to be trusted, the show will be released in early summer. Just in time for camp.

Here’s a little something to get you in the mood:
