Hey, 90s Kids! Carmen Sandiego is Coming Back for More Geography Teaching Adventures…
If you grew up watching PBS in the 1990s, you know exactly who Carmen Sandiego is. However, you might not know where she is… Netflix is changing that and bringing the world-famous international thief to your screens starting in 2019.
Playing the title role is Golden Globe Winning Actress Gina Rodriguez. The actress best known for her role on The CW’s Jane the Virgin will voice the woman in the red coat and fedora. Joining Rodriguez on the cast is Finn Wolfhard from Netflix’s Stranger Things. Wolfhard voices Player, Carmen’s friend and accomplice in her many international capers. The first season will feature 20 episodes of international adventures and historical artifact theft.
My favorite subject in school was always geography and the game show version featuring Carmen Sandiego helped me win a couple of Geography Bees in my younger years. That show was called Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?. The Netflix version sounds like a reboot of the Saturday morning cartoon, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?. The game show features the iconic theme song I’m sure everyone remembers.
Now Everyone Jam:
Grab your fedoras and letterman’s jackets and get those kiddos ready, its time for some fun. New geography adventures and capers featuring Carmen Sandiego hit Netflix in 2019.
