Carmen Sandiego season 3 cast
Gina Rodriguez who voices Carmen Sandiego will reprise her role, as well as Finn Wolfhard, who will return as Player. In an interview with PEOPLE, Wolfhard shared details of his role. He said:

Gina Rodriguez to star on Carmen Sandiego live-action film
“…So Duane created this entire incredibly intertwined beautiful story with backstory and all that, and so with the live-action, ideally we would be able to create multiple films. But to bring in this first film, it is really imperative to us to create this iconic character that we loved, right? That we didn’t know much about, and give her a really solid story that we all fall in love with.”
