Renewed: Carmen Sandiego

Renewed for: Season 2

What it’s about: This titular character is a superthief. Carmen Sandiego is an animated series that is perfect for the whole family, focused on a girl who becomes a thief who only steals from other thieves. Think of her a little like Robin Hood but she saves lives instead of gives them money.

The first season follows Carmen through her more recent international escapades. Her aim is to prevent V.I.L.E. stealing lives and gaining world domination.

Why the renewal is good: It didn’t take long for this family Netflix Original to get a renewal. The series became an instant success because it gave us a strong female character that we could all get behind. While she may have been raised as a thief, she took steps to be a good person. She uses her skills and expertise to save lives.

We need more shows that are different to the norm, shows that are willing to teach children in ways that aren’t stereotypical and expected. Carmen Sandiego is perfect for this. It offers a fun animated series that teaches all about love and using a superpower for good.

This is a show that gives young girls someone to look up to be. Yet, she isn’t perfect, making her a well-thought out and developed character. There are times she makes mistakes and she can struggle with making friends or trusting people, but considering her upbringing that isn’t surprising. However, she owns her mistakes and it’s exciting to see another season of this.
