The popular PBS series that teaches children about science is getting a reboot. Netflix has announced that ‘The Magic School Bus” is making it’s way to the streaming service. Complete with Ms. Frizzle and her students along with a list of celebrity appearances.
It’s been nearly 20 years since the series debuted. The show is based on the science book series by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen.
The revival was originally announced in 2014 and will, like its viewership, change with the times. With computer generated animation and and a top-of-the-line school bus, equipped with robotic and gadgets to accurately reflect modern technology, kids will get to experience science and technology as it relates to their time, Netflix’s chief content officer told The New York Times. Ms. Frizzle’s hair, however, will remain very much the same — fiery red and curly.
