At the end of the 2001 cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, Bradley Cooper's character Ben tells his fellow camp counselors, "Hey, let's all promise that in 10 years from today, we'll meet again and we'll see what kind of people we've blossomed into."

In the first trailer for Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, the gang returns to Camp Firewood a decade later -- the year is 1991 -- with the exception of Ben, who pitched the idea in the first place. According to IMDB, Cooper will not be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel series, but the trailer is hilarious nonetheless.
