Netflix’s “Carmen Sandiego” New Details

Following the report the other day that “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez will provide the voice of the title character, Netflix has made it official and released the first teaser art from its upcoming new series adaptation of iconic educational video game and TV series “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?”.

The all new animated series is being produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and DHX Media with Duane Capizzi (“The Batman”) serving as showrunner. Also onboard are CJ Kettler (“The Tick”) and Caroline Fraser as executive producers.

The series will be twenty episodes long, each lasting 22 minutes, and will tackle the mysteries of Carmen’s past, exploring her origins as she goes on even more international capers. Also onboard is “Stranger Things” actor Finn Wolfhard who will voice The Player who is described as “Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend”.

Sadly the show is a long way off, it isn’t expected to launch on the service until 2019.
