Looking at the cast list and the episodes listed on IMDB and saw that Logan is in episodes as early as episode 2. The Baby-Sitters Agency girls they had cast are now in 2 episodes. They cast Mr. Barrett so book 5 is totally on the table. The girl they had for Charlotte is gone so I wonder who they're casting for her.
So what books do you think that they're adapting (aside from the first 5)? Any theories on the original stories? I saw that actress playing Dawn mentioned her activism, I'm wondering they'll do Dawn Saves the Planet.
I"m pretty excited for this lol. I never watched the series or the movie growing up, so this is my first time getting involved with the fandom when a new series comes out.

I'm thinking characters may be in stories that they weren't in in the books. For example, Mrs. Papadakis and Mrs. Rodowsky are listed in episode 3 but neither one was introduced that early in the books. They have very few client families listed. I see the Brewer/Thomases, the Newtons, the Pikes, the Barretts, and the two moms. I assume there are a lot of cast members not listed yet.
In a bid to keep the TV version as timely as possible, episodes will broach topics including divorce, racism and belonging.
I'll guess Stacey's parents' divorce for sure. Maybe Mary Anne is raised by her single, white dad and feels out of place.

There is also a Scott. He was the hot lifeguard at Sea City. So, I think Sea City definitely is happening in some capacity.
There are a few characters listed as campers/NYC camper. They did so many "camp" like activities, so that could be anything. NYC = that thing they did in Stacey's Mistake?
Dawn is only in 7/10 episodes. We should get the formation of the club. That will actually be nice since the first show and movie both started with the club fully established and all 7 girls in. I would guess we'll get at least some of The Truth About Stacey. I think it's been said that we'll get Mary Anne Saves the Day. Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls is kind of a throw away first story for Claudia. It doesn't offer much character depth, so maybe we'll get some Claudia and Mean Janine instead.
The cast list has to still be very incomplete. Most of the girls have zero family members listed. Some Pikes are listed but not Mallory. Although it would be hilarious if Mallory was mentioned a lot but was always off screen.

I must be spending too much time at home with my cats because today I was hoping that Boo-Boo will make a solid appearance in Kristy’s Great Idea, depending how they adapt the story. That cat, Morbidda Destiny and Karen really crack me up especially in the Graphic Novel. Would be funny to see Watson petting Boo-Boo in a quick scene, because isn’t Watson the only person Boo-Boo tolerates? Can’t remember. Will be fun to see how they adapt the Morbidda Destiny character into the show.
