Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez to Voice Netflix Reboot of Carmen Sandiego
By: Joe Hyer
Where (in the world) is Carmen Sandiego? The answer to that question may soon be that she is on Netflix.
Reports say that Netflix just ordered 20 episodes of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? as an animated series. The show is based on the '80's educational video game and '90s PBS television show.
Gina Rodriguez, who is the star of the hit CW show Jane the Virgin, is expected to voice the role of Carmen Sandiego. Rodriguez has even been tweeting about the rumors:
I already have the fedora and coat. So it's definitely true. -------- https://t.co/Fg2T6yw8W3— Gina Rodriguez (@HereIsGina) April 15, 2017
The run of nostalgic ‘90s educational programming isn’t stopping there. Netflix is already working on a reboot of The Magic School Bus. Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) signed on to voice Ms. Frizzle earlier this year.
Yes, we are totally singing the Carmen Sandiego theme song to get ready for the revival.
