Netflix have shared the first look at The Baby-Sitters Club reboot
Netflix have shared the first look at The Baby-Sitters Club reboot.
The dramedy - based on the bestselling books series - was given a straight-to-series order last year, with a 10-episode first season.
The original book series focused on a group of friends in Stoneybrook Connecticut, after they set up a baby-sitting service - and now Netflix have shared the first look at the revival.
Earlier this week, the streaming service shared the poster for the new series, as they confirmed that the The Baby-Sitters Club is officially back in business.

The Baby-Sitters Club is based on the best-selling book series of the same name and follows the friendship and adventures of Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace), Mary-Anne Spier (Malia Baker), Claudia Kishi (Momona Tamada), Stacey McGill (Shay Rudolph), and Dawn Schafer (Xochitl Gomez) - middle-schoolers who start their babysitting business in the town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
Rounding out the cast, Alicia Silverstone plays Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer, the selfless single-mother of Kristy Thomas and love interest of all around good guy Watson Brewer, played by Mark Feuerstein.
Ann M. Martin, the beloved series author and producer on the new series, was the first to conceive the idea of these inspiring young girls with different backgrounds, personalities and opinions that were brought together by a business venture they conceived and bonded through the friendships they forged.
The adaptation of the contemporary dramedy that continues to champion friendship, female empowerment and entrepreneurship was led by Rachel Shukert (Glow) as showrunner and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) as executive producer and director.
