gina rodriguez carmen sandiego cast netflix reboot

Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez to Voice Netflix's Carmen Sandiego

Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Netflix, it turns out.

As we teased last week, Jane the Virgin leading lady Gina Rodriguez has formally been tapped to voice the criminal mastermind in a new animated series that, upon its 2019 debut, not only will follow the Miss of Misdemeanor on her next escapades, its 20 22-minute episodes will also reveal how and why she became the world’s greatest thief. Finn Wolfhard — aka Stranger Things’ Mike — is also on board to voice Player, the Lady in Red’s accomplice and confidant, in the show, which is being executive-produced by Duane Capizzi (The Batman).

In addition to making trouble in countless video games since the 1980s — as well as books and her own game show — the smooth criminal also headlined Fox’s 1994-99 animated series, Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?

What do you think? Will your kids be intrigued by the prospect of a Carmen Sandiego reboot? Are you down with Rodriguez’s casting? Hit the comments.

    Forget my kids, of which I have none, I’m looking forward to this! I hope it doesn’t suck!

      I am surprisingly curious to learn her backstory!

      Also, I think I shall be forever impressed by those kids that ran all over the maps and ~correctly~ placed the markers. (Plus the machines in Where in Time were pretty spiffy looking, too.)

    I am still baffled as to why this isn’t a phone game yet. Make an app for that! Haha.

    Could Liberty’s Kids be next?! They always planned a follow up covering the Civil War, that’d be great!
