Nearly 15 years after its debut, cult classic “Wet Hot American Summer” has set its revival as a limited series on Netflix, Deadline reports. Filming has begun on an eight-episode series, with much of the movie’s original cast returning.

David Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote the 2001 movie, also created the series, eyed as a prequel, with Wain returning to the director’s chair.
The movie’s cast included Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Showalter and Kevin Sussman.
Variety first reported news of the series possible return last May.
Set on the last day at a fictional Jewish summer camp in 1981, the film became a cult favorite after flopping at the box office.
