Nothing was more thrilling as a fifth-grader than the romantic exploits of The Baby-Sitters Club girls and their families. When Dawn’s mom married Mary Anne’s dad? The talk of the century. In the new Netflix adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club, Kristy Thomas’s mom and stepfather, Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer and Watson Brewer, will be played by Alicia Silverstone (Clueless) and Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains), according to a Netflix press release. The rest of the cast, including Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer — the five best friends who start a babysitting venture in Stony Brook, Connecticut — have yet to be cast. Author Ann M. Martin will serve as a producer, and Rachel Shukert (GLOW) is showrunner. Lucia Aniello (Broad City) is directing and executive-producing. The gang is starting to form! Quick, call your mom and find out if she still has all your old books in the attic.
