'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later' (Courtesy Netflix)

It's a wet, hot American August on Netflix

While Marvel Entertainment's overpowering drive through pop culture continues on Netflix in August with Marvel's The Defenders -- Daredevil! Jessica Jones! Luke Cage! Iron Fist! -- we're more excited about the latest installment that originated from an off-the-wall movie cult classic from 2001.

The comic premise behind Wet Hot American Summer was that a bunch of adolescent camp counselors were played by a group of adults, all great comedy talents in their own right. Set in 1981, the Netflix series prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp came out in 2015 and, of course, the cast had aged naturally by then, upping the laughs. Now, the delightful absurdity continues with Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, now taking place in 1991. All three make for great ensemble pieces and everyone looks to have had a lot of fun playing off of each other.

The series debuts on Friday, Aug. 4. Here's the month's schedule (asterix marks Netflix Original):
