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.’

Although we see Ben say that in the trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, come the reunion, he’s a no-show – but almost everyone else is back; along with a host of newbies.
