Hey, kids from the nineties! Get ready from a blast from the past because the BSC is back!
That’s right, Netflix just announced the return of Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer. Your favourite babysitters will be bringing their adventures to the small screen in the form of a ten-episode live-action dramedy. Take a look:
“The themes of The Baby-Sitters Club still resonate 30 years after the original book series was released and there has never been a more opportune time to tell an aspirational story about empowering young female entrepreneurs,” said Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids & Family at Netflix. “Together with Ann M. Martin and the team at Walden Media, our ambition is to contemporize the storylines and adventures of this iconic group of girlfriends to reflect modern-day issues.”
Brace yourselves because Baby Shark is coming to NetflixWhile this news probably brings to minds the beloved novels from your childhood (who else remembers the summer when Stacey went totally boy-crazy?), the series was adapted into a series of graphic novels in recent years for a whole new generation. That means that it won’t just be nostalgic millennial moms (like us) tuning in—there are plenty of young fans excited about this news as well!
For those worried this Netflix version will be a mature, sexed-up version of the franchise (a-la-Riverdale), don’t stress, the new show is reported to be completely family-friendly, while still handling topics such as racism and inclusivity. So get excited because we’re heading back to Stoneybrook, Connecticut!
