When Netflix announced that it was going to resurrect the title with some members of the original cast, most people assumed we’d see a handful of Camp Firewood’s counselors return. Well, Netflix went above and beyond. The streaming network confirmed that pretty much everyone from the original movie wil appear in the new series.
