Netflix has released the title sequence for its upcoming reboot of the classic animated series Carmen Sandiego featuring a new theme song written by Jared Lee Gosselin and sung by Raquel Castro.

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.

Here’s the synopsis:

Carmen is a modern day Robin Hood traveling the globe and stealing from V.I.L.E. and giving back to its victims. Carmen is publicly perceived as a criminal by most law enforcement agencies -- correction, make that a master criminal due to the sheer scale and theatricality of her heists. We will follow her escapades and get to determine not only where but WHO in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

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.
