Watch the first teaser below

Following the success of its prequel miniseries last year, Netflix has confirmed that Wet Hot American Summer will return for another 8-episode event.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later will reunite the various campers and counselors of Camp Firewood a decade after the original film takes place. The premise for the new season is based on a line from one of the last scenes in the film, spoken by Bradley Cooper's Ben.

"Let's all promise that in ten years from today, we'll meet again, and we'll see what kind of people we've blossomed into," Cooper says while sitting with the rest of the camp's counselors.

Creators Michael Showalter and David Wain are set to executive produce, with Wain directing each episode. There's currently no confirmation on who from the original cast will return for the new series. Last year's prequel, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, saw the return of Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino and more.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is set to debut on Netflix in 2017.
