Gina Rodriguez, 'Stranger Things' actor, to lend voice to Netflix's 'Carmen Sandiego'

We caught her Gumshoes

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) worldwide criminal, according to i09.

There will still be a learning component, of course - Carmen Sandiego will be produced by global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

The popular Carmen Sandiego series will receive a new animated series, consisting of 20 episodes. Players were able to track Carmen not only as she traveled the world, but also the space-time continuum.

The series was a famous computer game created in 1985 before being turned into a kids game show for PBS called Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? .

As well as Gina Rodriguez, who won a Golden Globe and two further nominations for her leading role in ongoing hit comedy Jane the Virgin, Finn Wolfhard has also been named as a cast member. Players visit different countries where crimes have taken place, gathering hints from various sources until the thief is found. Multiple sequels to the game were released, taking Carmen Sandiego on adventures to different locations, even through time and space.

The series will follow Sandiego as she travles the world to pull off a string of worldwide heists - all with an educational slant - while also delving into the character's backstory.

In 1994, Fox aired the animated series, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? Latest release Carmen Sandiego Returns arrived on iOS in 2015.
