Netflix is reportedly planning a ten episode prequel series to the cult 2001 comedy "Wet Hot American Summer".

The film's creators David Wain and Michael Showalter will executive produce the series which hopes to reunite many of the original 30 and 40-something cast members to play high-school-age characters.

The original boasted an impressive cast list including the likes of Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Judah Friedlander, H. Jon Benjamin, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce and Michael Ian Black.

The hope is to get as many of them back as possible. As not every character will appear in every episode, the plan is to have each of the actors shoot their scenes in just a few days.

Talk of a sequel and/or prequel have been swirling for a few years but only in movie form, this marks the first time there's been talk of a small screen return. »
