Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) will provide the voice of Carmen Sandiego in a reboot of the animated kids show Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? on Netflix.

The show started out as an educational computer game that taught kids geography and then went on as sequels, an animated series, books and live action game shows.

Netflix has ordered 20 22-minute episodes. In addition to Rodriguez, “Stranger Things” star Finn Wolfhard will provide the voice of Player, Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend. Duane Capizzi will co-executive produce and serve as showrunner.

The show is set to premiere sometime in 2019.
