Netflix has announced a January premiere date for its upcoming reboot of the classic animated series Carmen Sandiego. Featuring the voice of Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez in the title role, Carmen Sandiego debuts Friday, January 18 on the internet TV network.
Produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 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.
The character debuted 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 1991-95. The animated series ran from 1994 to 1999 on Fox Kids.
