Netflix is bringing back another Wet Hot American Summer series, and it looks like almost everyone from those fateful days at Camp Firewood in 1981 made it to the reunion.

On Thursday, the streaming service released the first trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, which is slated to drop on August 4, Entertainment Weekly reports. Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig, Michael Showalter, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Marguerite Moreau, Christopher Meloni—essentially, everybody—agreed to the eight-episode project, and the new trailer gives us a glimpse at who they've "blossomed into" by 1991.

Lindsay nabbed a job as a hotshot newscaster in New York, where Coop whiles away a less glamorous existence behind a small, cluttered desk. McKinley had a baby, though with Bradley Cooper out of the production, it's unclear what his love life looks like. Somewhat predictably, Gene lives in a trailer.

Though it's been a decade since all the counselors last met, things at Camp Firewood look pretty much the same. Katie is still torn between Coop and Andy, Beth is still fighting to save camp from extinction, and Courtney is still obsessed with theater.

Some things have changed, though. A few new characters—played by Adam Scott, Alyssa Milano, Dax Shepard, and others—will be introduced to the rest of the seasoned hands. Check out the trailer above to see what happens when those two worlds collide—or, if for nothing else, to see that talking can of vegetables do its thing again.

All eight episodes of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later drop on Netflix August 4.
