Netflix has revealed the premiere date and first look images for “The Baby-Sitters Club” season 2. Based on the book series Ann M. Martin, “The Baby-Sitters Club” will premiere on October 11 on Netflix, worldwide.
“In Season 2, we get to see a maturation of the club and the girls,” said creator and showrunner Rachel Shukert. “There are two new members and they’re all a year older and have more experience running a business, deeper friendships, and are growing into a deeper understanding of themselves as people.”
Netflix announced Season 2 after the show was well-received by critics upon its release, with Season one holding a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
“We also wanted to keep exploring themes that allow all young viewers to see themselves reflected on screen, while also dealing obliquely with many of the things we've all been through in the last year: loss, change, responsibility, and attempting to find joy and significance in unexpected places. I'm overjoyed that everyone is back in Stoneybrook and back in business,” Rachel continued.
Below are the first look images revealed by Netflix today.
