Netflix will be premiering a new Carmen Sandiego cartoon this coming January 18, 2019. The new series features the voice of Golden Globe-winning star of Jane the Virgin, Gina Rodriguez. Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard is also part of the voice cast, lending his vocal talents to the role of the “Player.”
The Carmen Sandiego franchise first became popular through the 1985 via the educational computer game Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, which saw several iterations and even a spin-off kids’ game show on PBS. There was also an original animated series from DIC Entertainment and publishers Broderbund, which ran on Fox from 1994 to 1999.
By way of teaser, Netflix released a bunch of images showcasing the new series with its sleeker, contemporary art style. Check them out below:
