Produced by Hougton Mifflin Harcourt and DHX Media, the show runner will be Duane Capizzi, the writer for the animated series The Batman.
The online video giant has picked up a new animated series with 22 episodes starring Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez as the voice of the elusive (and fictional) global criminal, according to i09.
The series' first season will consist of 20 episodes, each of 22 minutes in length.
Rodriguez gushed about the news in a series of tweets Tuesday. Players were able to track Carmen not only as she traveled the world, but also the space-time continuum.
Rodriguez confirmed her role in the series Friday after word of the project broke.
"Stranger Things" star Finn Wolfhard will voice Sandiego's accomplice, Player.
Carmen Sandiego originated in the '80s as a series of educational computer games about a woman who leads a criminal organization. Two additional shows also aired following that one: Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? and Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? The series latest release was a mobile game developed in 2015 for PC and iOS, titled Carmen Sandiego Returns. The fresh take is set to present an intimate look into Carmen's past to follow her escapades and also answer who in the world Carmen Sandiego is and why she became a super thief. At the beginning and ending of each episode, a live action character is seen from behind a computer screen in order to create the idea that each episode is the game being played.
Carmen Sandiego is expected to launch on Netflix in 2019, via io9.
