Earlier this year, Netflix announced its plans to return to Camp Firewood for a Wet Hot American Summer sequel series that will take place 10 years after the film. Appropriately enough, the new show is titled Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, and it will be directed by David Wain, who’s co-writing the series with Michael Showalter. There haven’t been an official casting announcements, but the core cast is presumably returning. (After all, the immortal Paul Rudd can easily play an older or younger version of himself as needed.) And when the gang does get back together 10 years after their last day of summer camp, they’ll be joined by a friend who has apparently been in their beeswax all along.
Deadline reports that Mark Feuerstein has been cast in a major role. The Royal Pains alum will play “a friendly, hard-working guy” and “core member of the group who has definitely always been there every step of the way.” He’s grown up to be a powerful businessman who’s enjoyed as much success in his personal life as in his career. Are we sure he didn’t actually go to Camp Tigerclaw?
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later eight episodes will premiere sometime in 2017.
