Netflix has finally released the trailer for its upcoming Baby-Sitters' Club series, and it looks so good.
Fans of the 90s books will remember the story, which centred around a group of badass teenage girls who decided to set up their own babysitting service. The Netflix adaptation is a "contemporary" version of the story featuring characters Kristy, Stacey, Mary Anne, Claudia and Dawn.
Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids & Family at Netflix told Entertainment Weekly: "The themes of The Baby-Sitters' 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.
"Together with Ann M Martin and the team at Walden Media, our ambition is to contemporise the storylines and adventures of this iconic group of girlfriends to reflect modern-day issues."
The series stars Kristy Thomas (Sophie Grace), Mary-Anne Spier (Malia Baker), Claudia Kishi (Momona Tamada), Stacey McGill (Shay Rudolph), and Dawn Schafer (Xochitl Gomez) - and everyone's favourite 90s teen icon, Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone as Kristy's mum.
Series author Ann M. Martin was a producer on the show, so you can bet it's the real deal, although it's not the first adaptation of the series - it was first adapted as a live-action series by HBO and Nickelodeon in 1990. Then five years later, it was adapted into film by Emmy winner Melanie Mayron.
The 10-episode series will be available for streaming on Friday, July 3 - and we can't wait.
