Attention, gumshoes: Old episodes of Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? are probably returning to PBS

Devious global thief Carmen Sandiego may be making her way back to PBS stations. The network Instagrammed a picture (gleaned from Interpol, no doubt) of Sandiego’s signature hat and gloves with the note, “Where in the world did this come from? Stay tuned for something awesome!” It updated the page shortly thereafter with a not-so-vague clue, saying, “This is not about new episodes, but will be appreciated by any ‘90s kid.” Lest anyone be mildly confused, the “actual” (read: official) Carmen Sandiego Tweeted, “If I were to re-air my old PBS episodes, would you watch me?” There’s no confirmation of actual airdates yet, but the mere suggestion that reruns of the show could be coming back is enough to excite an old gumshoe all the same. Time to bone up on the ol’ giant Africa map.
