Baby-Sitters Club Fans – Get Ready

Get ready to return to Stoneybrook, Connecticut—Netflix has ordered a 10-episode live-action adaptation of Ann M. Martin’s best-selling series The Babysitters Club. According to Deadline, Martin will serve as a producer on the show, and the original core characters—Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer—will all be there (though casting is yet unknown.) The Netflix series will follow these five best friends through the tribulations of adolescence, addressing themes like interpersonal relationships, divorce, and racism through a modern day update to these girls’ babysitting business.
