About the show

Written by David Wain and Michael Showalter, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is an American comedy television series that is a prequel to the 2001 film of the same name. The series consists of eight episodes and premiered on Netflix on July 31, 2015.

Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni and others return to play teenage camp councilors that begin their work at Camp Firewood on the hot summer of 1981. As the prequel to the 2001 hit movie, this series portrays a younger version of the famous Maine’s camp councilors, who believe that the summer of ’81 is the summer of their lives. For this bunch, taking care of kids is not as important as getting laid, and starting from the first morning of their jobs, they begin to make their moves.

Much like the film, the series has received critical acclaim and very high viewer ratings – 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, for example. Although there hasn’t been any official news from Netflix on the future of the show, rumor has it that the series’ showrunner Michael Showalter allured to the fact that there will be a continuation. As such, we are sure that we will see Wet Hot American Summer Season 2 some time in the near future.
