Each season of “The Baby-Sitters Club” on Netflix takes after the books, showcasing the deep friendship of the girls as they go through family and life troubles while growing up. Both Seasons 1 and 2 have done a great job at highlighting relatable personal experiences like dealing with blended families, sickness, loss and grief, exploring your sexuality and relationships, and being exposed different cultures, to name a few.
At the end of Season 2, there are two major events that happen which greatly affect the girls. The first of which is Claudia’s grandmother Mimi (Fischer) passing away in her sleep, something that Mimi herself seems to foresee. Throughout Season 2, Mimi and Claudia spend a lot of time exploring more of traditional Japanese culture and tradition, which Claudia doesn’t know a lot about, and it brings them closer. But then Mimi dies, and each member of the Baby-Sitters Club feels this loss. Along with that, Kristy’s family is going through a lot, as her mother and new step-dad painfully decide to stop trying to get pregnant, eventually realizing that the best way to make everyone feel united as a family is for Watson (Feuerstein), Kristy’s new stepfather, to officially adopt both her and her brothers as his children.
The second season ends on a rather happy and satisfying note, but there are plenty of different places the story could go in a possible “The Baby-Sitters Club” Season 3, as the girls still have so much growing up to do.
