The beloved kiddie science show The Magic School Bus is getting a new lease on life, and now we have our first look at Netflix’s revival. There’s a new Ms. Frizzle in town, and she sounds a whole lot like Kate McKinnon.
Dubbed The Magic School Bus Rides Again, the series finds Ms. Frizzle’s younger sister getting the keys to the magic bus, along with a classroom of kiddos to take on a new run of exciting adventures. The series looks to recapture the same fun and magic of the original series, just with some updated visuals (and updated science, we’d imagine). Along with the new look, we even get a fresh take on the classic theme song from Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.
We even get a peek at a few of the new adventures Frizzle’s little sis has in store for the class, and it should be fun to get the bus back on the road after all these years. Can you believe the original has been off the air for a full 20 years?
The Magic School Bus Rides Again hits Netflix on September 29.
