I absolutely fangirl-ed today when it was announced that Netflix has ordered an adaptation of Ann M. Martin’s bestselling books.

Remember all the boy-based dramas, mischievous kids to babysit, great friendships, and an early introduction to female empowerment? I read and re-read all the books and thought the girls were the epitome of cool to not only have their own babysitting business…but to have their own landline!

The 10-part live-action The Babysitters Club series on Netflix will bring back all the fun and drama, following the group of teenage babysitters.

“The themes of The Babysitters Club still resonate 30 years after the original book series was released and there has never been a more opportune time to tell an aspirational story about empowering young female entrepreneurs,” said Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids & Family at Netflix. “Our ambition is to contemporize the storylines and adventures of this iconic group of girlfriends to reflect modern-day issues.”

The BabySitters Club on Netflix - MykidstimeThe first book in The Babysitters Club series was Kirsty’s Great Idea, and that soon grew to over 200 books licensed in over 20 territories with more than 180 million copies sold to date!

“I’m amazed that there are so many passionate fans of The Babysitters Club after all these years, and I’m honored to continue to hear from readers – now grown, who have become writers, editors, teachers, librarians, filmmakers – who say that they see a reflection of themselves in the characters of Kristy and her friends,” said Ann M. Martin, author of The Babysitters Club.

“I’m very excited about the forthcoming series, which I hope will inspire a new generation of readers and leaders everywhere.”

If you were a fan of the Stoneybrook girls, this is one you’ll definitely want to sit down and watch – I know I can’t wait! I might have to dig out all the books too…
