Wet Hot American Summer has some new campers. Deadline reports Jai Courtney, Samm Levine, Joey Bragg, and Marlo Thomas have joined season two of the Netflix series.

Returning cast members include Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Lake Bell, and Michael Showalter.
Courtney plays Garth MacArthur, a suave, indie movie darling who is about to become a household name. Garth is recognized wherever he goes, but his eyes aren’t on the fans. He’s mad about Susie (Poehler) and wishes she would agree to take their relationship beyond “friends with benefits.” He joins her on the trip back to Camp Firewood.
Levine, who voiced Camp Radio host Arty in the feature and the first Netflix series will actually appear as the character on Ten Years Later. Arty is the first person everyone at camp hears each morning. Thomas will play Vivian, a woman with a mysterious connection to the past history of the camp.
Bragg will play Seth, a fast-talking camp counselor at Camp Firewood.”
