No offense to Baywatch, Rough Night, or the upcoming film The House, but it is hard to imagine seeing anything this summer that is funnier than the first trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later. Don’t believe us? Watch the video above.
A Netflix original series based on the final scene from David Wain’s 2001 cult classic, Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later reunites the majority of the film’s cast and the recent First Day of Camp spinoff series for a new story set in 1991. The counselors have all grown up and moved on to adult lives, but when the camp falls on hard times they come together once more to save the place they love. They also get into a lot of trouble, romantic entanglements, and argumentative pissing contests that results in fantastic one-liners.
