Video: Wet Hot American Summer Gets Beefy In Full Trailer

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's time to smear some mud on your ass, because that's the only way to celebrate the full official trailer for the new Netflix revival of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp. It's the prequel/sequel we've been waiting for over a decade, it smells weird, and we can't wait to see it.

And in addition to all the familiar faces at Camp Firewood, we get a glimpse at a lot of the new camp members and counselors, including Jason Schwartzman, Lake Bell, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery, "Ronald Reagan," Weird Al, and a newcomer named Jon Hamm (as Gene's enemy).

The eight-episode series will be released on Netflix on July 31st. After watching the trailer, and wondering how Gene lost his golden mane, you'll be the one asking, "who beefed?"
