Netflix is heading back to Camp Firewood once again!

Last year, the streaming service reassembled the star studded cast of Wet Hot American Summer for the hilarious prequel series First Day Of Camp.

Now, Netflix announced it is paddling out yet another chapter of the campy saga called Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later!

The upcoming 30-minute comedy series will take place 10 years after the original 2001 film — but should NOT be considered a sequel to First Day of Camp.

But don't worry, campers… Ten Years Later will still be set at Camp Firewood, and is being written by Michael Showalter and David Wain — who wrote and directed both the original film and prequel series.

No casting information has been released just yet, but since the OG creative team is back, we're sure Camp Firewood alumni like Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and Elizabeth Banks will be up for a third round!

Ch-ch-check out the official announcement video (below) and get excited for WHAS: Ten Years Later, set for a 2017 premiere!

Those new rangers sure have their work cut out for them!

We've been mighty excited for Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers movie, especially after seeing the first looks at the fresh meat playing the new rangers.

And after seeing the first alluring yet scary look of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, we were even MORE excited for the big screen reboot!

Video: Elizabeth Proves That Women Are Funny On Ellen!

At first, we weren't sure if the actress' sexy alien take on the classic villain would do the intergalactic sorceress justice.

But after seeing the first pictures of E.Banks in action on the Vancouver set, we can say we're officially terrified!

On Monday, the Hunger Games alum was spotted on set donning a green body suit and a long staff. Call Zordon and get the rangers, quick — because we do not wanna mess with whatever terror Rita is cooking up!

Ch-ch-check out the set photos (above) to get Repulsa-fied!

It's Morphin' Time for Elizabeth Banks! (Well, sort of…)

The Pitch Perfect 2 director is set to star as the villain in the upcoming Power Rangers movie!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has signed on to play the iconic character Rita Repulsa — the alien witch who is bent on world domination!

The 41-year-old will be trying to put a stop to a group of teenagers who are infused with powers — played by RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludy Lin, Naomi Scott, and Dacre Montgomery!

Rita was the OG villain of the hit 1990's TV series, and we think Banks is an inspired choice to play the campy yet scary character!

Plus, the actress is already used to wearing crazy costumes playing Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games, so pulling off Rita's bewitching wardrobe should be a breeze!

With the addition of Banks, and the fact that the X-Men: First Class writers are penning the script, we're definitely showing our excitement for the Power Rangers movie — and Rita is, too…
