Like you needed another excuse to stay in and watch binge Netflix all day. The cult classic 2001 Wet Hot American Summer film is coming back for an eight-episode series on Netflix, and will feature most of the original all-star cast.

The reported returning cast includes Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Judah Friedlander, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Michael Showalter and more. David Wain and Michael Showalter, who wrote the movie, created the limited series, with Wain reprising directing duties.

Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, Wet Hot American Summer film follows a group of counselors who are each trying to complete their unfinished business before the day ends at Camp Firewood. The movie was a box office let down, but gained popularity later on as most of the young actors in the film became mainstream Hollywood stars.
