We couldn't have been more excited when Netflix announced it would be rebooting The Baby-Sitters Club. After a long year of waiting and an amazing re-creation of the famous book cover, we've finally been given a release date: July 3. The 10-episode series will follow five friends (and a few others) as they decide to start a babysitting service in the town of Stoneybrook. Instead of being set in the '90s like the original, the reboot has been updated for present day in order to tackle modern-day issues.
The new series stars Sophie Grace as athlete and club president Kristy Thomas, Malia Baker as bookworm and secretary Mary Anne Spier, Shay Rudolph as fashionista and treasurer Stacey McGill, Momona Tamada as artist and vice president Claudia Kishi, and Xochitl Gomez as new girl Dawn Schafer. No need to worry about missing out on the nostalgia factor, as Alicia Silverstone will play Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer aka Kristy Thomas's mother.
Although the trailer doesn't give everything away, you can already tell it's going to stay true to the series you remember (hello, there's the iconic clear phone) while also keeping things fresh and fun. Watch the full trailer ahead, and prepare to binge when it all goes down on July 3.
