Fans of the 2001 comedy cult classic Wet Hot American Summer will be able to revisit their beloved Camp Firewood Netflix debuts the new TV series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp this July.

28 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.
