A SPY KIDS Reboot Is Heading to Netflix

Oh Shi..itake mushrooms, another reboot is heading our way. And this time it’s Spy Kids. That makes total sense because the ’90s and early oughts are making a comeback in a big way. We have Warheads hard seltzers, nostalgic Play-Doh, we are even getting That ’90s Show. So why shouldn’t we also have a Spy Kids reboot as the cherry on top? And it looks like this Spy Kids reboot is coming to Netflix.

According to VarietyNetflix recently closed on a deal to reboot the franchise. Though little is known about the upcoming Spy Kids reboot movie, we do know that, according to Variety, “Robert Rodriguez, who created the original series, has returned for the upcoming reboot, which he will write and direct.” So that puts it in some very good hands.

Although there aren’t many, or really any details beyond that, it doesn’t exactly feel hard to imagine where a new Spy Kids movie might go. The Spy Kids franchise is all about a family business after all. The original movies revolve around Carmen and Juni Cortez (Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara) and their parents, played by Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino. Together, they make up a family of spies.

The natural course of things seems to be to reveal the next generation of the Cortez family and follow them on their new, modern adventures. Maybe we can even get their parents and grandparents to appear in the show. It would certainly make for a fun callback to some of our youth. That said, Netflix does share the Spy Kids reboot will introduce the world to “a new family of spies.”

A new family could just mean a new/old family. But, of course, there’s always the chance the movie will go down a completely new road. Either way, we’ve got our spy suits on and are ready to go. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of 2001 knocking on our door.
