The Daily Heat Index: Netflix Greenlits Another ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Series
Plus, Ellie Kemper proves her versatility on ‘Conan,’ and we watch Wonder Woman’s introduction in ‘Batman v. Superman.’
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Another Round of Wet Hot
It looks as though the Wet Hot saga will continue, as Netflix has just given the green light for production to begin on Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. As the title suggests, this is not a sequel to the critically-acclaimed revamp of the series, “First Day of Camp,” and will take place ten years after the setting of the original 2001 cult classic. While details of the cast are currently unknown, it’s hard to imagine the series working without the likes of Amy Poehler, Chris Meloni, Bradley Cooper, and that wise can of vegetables. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

Ellie Kemper: Queen of RBF
As a young woman blessed with a new outlook on life on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Ellie Kemper is very well known for being perky just about all the goddamn time. Due to her inability to unscrew her smile, the actress admits that many people mistake her normal, calm face for a serious attitude, more commonly known to the world as a ‘resting bitch face.’ “That’s just me thinking!” Kemper screams to the camera after demonstrating. Her fear of wrinkles doesn’t compare to Conan’s similar issue. He tells the Netflix star that when people catch him driving on the 405, he has a fear of coming off sad and constipated. First world problems, amiright?
Wonder Woman’s Proper Introduction
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice may have come off as a total trainwreck, but there was at least one bright spot that emerged from the film’s crumbling ruin: Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot’s take on the Amazonian warrior was spot on, with the Israeli actress stealing the show as fan favorite over Henry Cavill’s Superman and Batfleck. Though it’s going to be a while before the heroine gets her own go at a standalone, WB released the clip of her BVS introduction for us to watch over and over again. We’re very thankful for you, Gal.
