In an exclusive by the Tracking Board, Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) has signed on to voice the infamous Carmen Sandiego for a new animated series for Netflix.

According to insiders, Netflix has ordered 20 episodes for the new animated series. The series will be a mixture of educational fun as the show follows the character on her traveling escapades.

I have vague childhood memories of the character Carmen Sandiego growing up. She was more of a fixture for kids’ games in the ’80s and early 90’s, so I wasn’t really a functioning toddler by then. I have vague fuzzy memories of ‘Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?’ but, other than that, all I remember is that distinctive all red ensemble and giant hat.

The character Carmen Sandiego has appeared in games that help children learn geography, history, math, and English. She is known throughout the world as an infamous thief that kids had to solve puzzles in order to track down.  She also appeared in three TV shows. The most known one was ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?’.

For those of you who remember the character and the various games and shows she was on, are you excited to see Carmen Sandiego make a comeback? Do you think it’s exciting to see her be introduced to a new generation of kids? Do you think Gina Rodriguez’s voice is a good fit. Let us know in the comments below.
