Carmen Sandiego Is Back in All of Her Globe-Strutting Glory
Once upon a time, when Internet Explorer was a cutting-edge program and Microsoft Encarta held all the world's answers, there was a little PBS game show that made geography kind of fun.
It's time to renew your passport because it looks like Netflix is working on a reboot of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? Gina Rodriguez will voice the elusive, single woman in history capable of pulling off a crimson oversized trench and matching fedora while still looking sexy, aka Carmen Sandiego. Set to premiere sometime in 2019, the 20-episode series will also feature Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard as Player, the Thelma to Carmen's Louise. The revival aims to dig deeper into the origin story of Carmen and will uncover why and how she became a globe-trotting hustler.
