Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

The super popular 80’s video game franchise (and tv favorite) is getting a reboot by Netflix. The educational game, which followed the globe-trotting thief around the world to teach geography lessons, spawned PBS’ live-action game shows Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (1991 to 1996) and Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego? The character was also the subject of several book and comic series. The most well known iteration was the animated series Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?, which aired on Fox from 1994 to 1999.

The newest incarnation of the character will be voiced by Gina Rodriguez, who just happens to work with the original voice actress, Rita Moreno, in the CW’s Jane the Virgin. In the Netflix reboot, Carmen Sandiego is back and ready for a new crop of international capers packed with thrilling adventure and intrigue.

The fresh take is set to present an intimate look into Carmen’s past to follow her escapades and also answer who in the world Carmen Sandiego is and why she became a super thief.

Netflix has ordered twenty 22-minute episodes of Carmen Sandiego, which is set to premiere in 2019.
