Ever since it was announced that the cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer would be getting a Netflix prequel, it skyrocketed towards the top of my list of the most anticipated works of the year. With each and every little teaser coming from Netflix, my anticapation for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp continues to grow. This latest video introduces us, or reintroduces us, to the varied cast of counselors there to greet the campers at Camp Firewood.
Since you have time to kill before Camp Firewood reopens, you have plenty of time to catch Wet Hot star Paul Rudd step into the Marvel Universe with Ant-Man. But most importantly, you have plenty of time to catch the original Wet Hot American Summer, which is currently streaming on Netflix. You have two weeks before Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp hits Netflix on July 31st, 2015.
