In 2001, the Camp Firewood counsellors made a pact that in 10 years, they would reunite. Well, it’s 14 years later and the Netflix re-boot will actually be a prequel to the movie and depict what the counsellors were up to the first day of camp. Audiences fell to the floor with laughter over this indie comedy that featured several up and coming stars such as Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Poehler. The scenes with unhygienic kitchen staff, horny counsellors, and the hippy camp director are recognizable for anyone who went to summer camp. Now that the reunion is happening thanks to Netflix, let’s take a look at what the cast of Wet Hot American Summer has been up to between the 2001 movie and 2015 TV series.
