Apple TV+ is bringing back the iconic girl spy Harriet the Spy in the form of an animated series. The series will be based on Louise Fitzhugh’s 1964 children’s book that was previously brought to life in the film of the same name in 1996, played by Michelle Trachtenberg. This time around, the young gumshoe will be voiced by Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), with Jane Lynch (Glee) and Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls) in supporting roles.
Will McRobb, co-creator of The Adventures of Pete & Pete, has adapted the script that “centers on a curious 11-year-old (Beanie Feldstein) who seeks to learn everything about anything in order to pursue her dreams of becoming a professional writer. Lynch will voice the girl’s nanny, Ole Golly, and Chabert will play popular girl Marion Hawthorne.”
This will be a really fun series for fans of the original story and kids alike. Will you be checking out the new Harriet the Spy series?
