Netflix has announced that the iconic classic cult hit movie Wet Hot American Summer will spawn yet another offspring. Netflix has picked up an eight episode season of Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later. The original film’s creators Michael Showalter and David Wain are back on board for the sequel season, with both co-penning the series, and Wain directing.
For those of you who predicted another season, congratulations you were right.

Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black,Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, David Hyde Pierce, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, AD Miles, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter, all jumped back on for the prequel, and some new famous faces joined in like Judah Friedlander, Jason Schwartzman, and Kristin Wiig.
