As the iconic theme tune went, Where is Carmen Sandiego? The answer is Netflix.

The streaming service has commissioned a 22-episode animated series based on the 80s videogame. It will star Gina Rodriguez ('Jane the Virgin') as Carmen, with Finn Wolfhard ('Stranger Things') co-starring as The Player.

Each episode will be 22 minutes long and will focus on Carmen's origins and early life. It's likely to fill viewers in on Sandiego's backstory, and how she became an international thief.

As well as being a bestselling educational computer game, the character has had two live-action game shows, titled 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' and 'Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?' She's also had her own cartoon series called 'Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?'

Netflix has been on a roll of late. Despite posting slightly disappointing financial results recently, it's still edging closer to 100 million viewers worldwide. It's also exploring the possibility of screening its original films in cinemas at the same time as they stream to the home.
