It's a rainy, miserable day and we're in dire need of a happiness boost. And Netflix has exactly what we need!
The Baby-Sitters Club reboot has just landed on the streaming service and we're beyond excited about it.
The show is bound to give fans of the original series all of the nostalgia!
The Baby-Sitters Club is based on the best-selling book series by Ann M. Martin, that 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) as the middle-schoolers 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.
This series is exactly what we need to cheer us up on this rainy Friday.
The Baby-Sitters Club is available on Netflix now.
