First Arrested Development, and now Wet Hot American SummerNetflix sure knows how to woo cult-comedy fans.

After resurrecting the beloved Bluth family for an Arrested Development reboot, Netflix is looking to turn cult classic Wet Hot American Summer into a TV series, Variety reports.

According unnamed sources, the 2001 film “may be turned into a 10-episode prequel for the streaming service.” But due to its large cast of now well-known actors, the show will be shot in separate sequences and weaved together, as was Arrested Development.

Wet Hot American Summer served as a launchpad for celebrities like Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poeher, and Elizabeth Banks. If you’ve never seen the film, you are truly missing out.

For Netflix, another cult series would further bolster its offering against traditional television providers like Comcast.
