As promised in the 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer, the gang from Camp Firewood has reunited 10 years later and made it their beeswax to be on time. Only now Paul Rudd looks like Matt Dillon in Singles.

Yes, it’s 1991, as the trailer makes very clear, and there’s a lot of ephemera from the era, as well as faces from the original film and 2015 Netflix prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. There are new faces, too, like Alyssa Milano, Adam Scott, and Jai Courtney.

Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton also show up.

The series debuts Aug. 4.
