Netflix is bringing back another oldie.
The streaming giant confirmed Thursday that it is bringing fans a reboot of the beloved The Baby-Sitters Club.
Netflix ordered a 10-episode live-action series based on Ann M. Martin’s best-selling book series. The reboot will follow the five best friends in Stoneybrook, Connecticut, who form a babysitting business. Episodes will explore topics relevant for teens today, such as racism, divorce, school, sibling rivalries and jealousy.
The reboot will be helmed by Rachel Shukert (Supergirl and GLOW writer).
“I’m amazed that there are so many passionate fans of The Baby-Sitters Club after all these years, and I’m honored to continue to hear from readers — now grown, who have become writers, editors, teachers, librarians, filmmakers — who say that they see a reflection of themselves in the characters of Kristy and her friends,” Martin, who will also be producing the new show said in a statement. “So I’m very excited about the forthcoming series on Netflix, which I hope will inspire a new generation of readers and leaders everywhere.”
This will be the third adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club.
