Netflix has announced a premiere date for its upcoming reboot of the classic animated series Carmen Sandiego. Featuring the voice talents of Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez in the title role, Carmen Sandiego debuts on the streaming service on Friday, January 18.
Produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, with animation provided by Chromosphere, the new Carmen Sandiego features not only a new crop of international capers packed but will look into Carmen’s past to tell who she is and why she became a super thief. Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) voices Player, Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend.
Written by showrunner and head writer Duane Capizzi and produced by Caroline Fraser, Carmen Sandiego features art direction by Kevin Dart. The story editor is May Chan.
Carmen Sandiego made her debut in a 1980s computer game franchise Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? and probably is best known for the Greg Lee-hosted game show that aired on PBS from 1991-1995. The animated series ran from 1994 to 1999 on Fox Kids.
