Two years ago, Netflix took us back to the first day the campers at Camp Firewood met in Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day. At the end of the series, Ben (Bradley Cooper) said, ‘Hey! 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.’
