Netflix’s reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club has introduced its cast and released a brand new poster that’s absolutely perfect.
The show has garnered a significant amount of buzz since it was first announced last February, with fans eager to see their favorite five best friends come back to the small screen in what’s been described as a “contemporary live action original series that will follow the friendship and babysitting adventures of five best friends in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.”
Though we’ve known about the show for over a year, Netflix to this day had only announced two adult cast members — Alicia Silverstone as Kristy Thomas’ mother Elizabeth Thomas and Mark Feuerstein as Watson Brewer, her love interest and eventual husband.
However, Netflix finally broke its silence on the cast for the iconic children’s series and introduced the five best friends to fans and soon-to-be fans. Check out the five girls below!
Momona Tamada has been cast as Claudia Kishi, Malia Baker will play shy bookworm Mary-Anne Spier, Sophie Grace will play Kristy Thomas, Xochitl Gomez will be Dawn Schafer and Shay Rudolph has been cast as Stacey McGill.
The Baby-Sitters Club will follow the friendship and adventures of the five best friends as the middle-schoolers start their babysitting business in the town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
Ann M. Martin, 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.
Netflix likewise released the first official poster for The Baby-Sitters Club which is set up to look like the cover from the very first book.
