Netflix is in for another Wet Hot American Summer. After the success of its recent prequel, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the 2001 indie comedy hit will be getting yet another incarnation. This one will be set 10 years after the original and presumably follow the gang from Camp Firewood during the reunion the campers promised to have in the final scene of the movie. The aptly named, Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, is expected to hit Netflix in the summer 2017.

Aml Ameen, star of Netflix original Sense8, has been replaced by newbie Toby Onwumere in the role of Capheus “Van Damme” for season two. The departure was abrupt and the details are vague, but sources feel it stemmed from a conflict between the actor and co-creator/executive producer/director Lana Wachowski during a table read that grew during production in India. Ameen left after shooting a couple episodes while the less-than-informative phrase “creative differences” was rumored to have been tossed around. Social media posts by cast members indicate that filming has now relocated to Italy.
