Netflix releases first images from its Wet Hot American Summer prequel

Netflix has released its first batch of cast photos from its Wet Hot American Summer prequel series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp, which, as the title implies, takes place on the first day at Camp Firewood ’81. As expected, the photos feature lots of funny people, some of whom are big movie and TV stars, having fun in outfits sourced from the ironic ’80s wear section of the local Salvation Army. Many of the new cast members, like Mad Men’s John Slattery and Jon Hamm, aren‘t featured in the initial batch of photos, but we already know they make it to the end of camp in one piece, so it’s fine. (Unless they’re lepers.)

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp will deliver 10 episodes’ worth of quotable lines on July 17—a date that it can’t change, presumably because it’s already moved it twice.
