Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, is getting revamped for the next generation. For us 90’s babies Carmen Sandiego was a computer game, that had the users turn into new agents for the ACME Detective Agency in their efforts to find Carmen Sandiego as she stole various precious objects from all over the world. This computer game was a learning tool that was initially created to teach us geography, and overtime expanded to other subjects.

Netflix is set to release the series in 2019 with 20, twenty-two minutes episodes. Congrats to Gina, you’re going to kill this role.
