Streaming platforms have breathed live into several much-loved vintage television series' and books and 'The Baby-Sitters' Club is the newest show to get a makeover, courtesy of Netflix.

The series is based on Ann M. Martin’s best-selling book series, 'The Baby-Sitters Club' is a contemporary live-action original series that will follow the friendship and babysitting adventures of five best friends in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

“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,” said Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids & Family at Netflix. 

“Together with Ann M. Martin and the team at Walden Media, our ambition is to contemporize the storylines and adventures of this iconic group of girlfriends to reflect modern-day issues.”

The book was made into a television series by HBO back in 1990. It ran for just one season.
