If you’ve never seen the 2001 summer-camp comedy Wet Hot American Summer, cancel your plans for two hours and get up to speed, because David Wain is reuniting the Camp Firewood gang. Set at the beginning of the summer of 1981, this Netflix show will serve as a prequel to the movie that gave us gems like “You taste like a burger” and “I’m gonna go fondle my sweaters.” The original cast—including Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Poehler—is back, alongside such new faces as Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm. It’s a pretty safe bet that this will be one of the funniest things happening on TV this summer.—Kara Wahlgren
The full series will be available July 31.
