The classic and beloved CD-ROM character is finally coming out of hiding, and revealing herself once again, on Netflix. The new animated series from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and DHX Media will be showrun by The Batman’s Duane Capizzi, with CJ Kettler (The Tick) and Caroline Fraser as executive producers alongside him, will focus on Carmen’s past, and her origins as the globetrotting enigma, that loves to teach us about the world.
The series will be 20 episodes long, running at 22 minutes each. Jane The Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez will voice Carmen, while Stranger Things’ very own Mike, a.k.a. actor Finn Wolfhard, will lend his voice to the Player, the unseen narrator that played a role in the original series, and CD-ROM games. The trick to all this? The series is set to air in 2019. Ouch.
