A triumph for some of you 80’s kids, certainly, with the original animated series having debuted back in 1983, lasting 2 full seasons. Erik Barmack, the VP of global independent content at Netflix pretty much had the same sentiment:
It’s one of those shows where we’re able to hit a few different audiences. We think that kids are going to love the show … but it’s also going to get some co-viewing because there is a generation of parents who grew up on the original.
Inspector Gadget, like the original, follows a detective fitted with all the James Bond-ish tech and gear in the world which he uses to hunt and takedown of crime syndicates. However, the reboot will be fully computer animated.
