Publish date:

The Magic School Bus Rides Again starts on Netflix Sept. 29. The show is a rethinking of The Magic School Bus, which aired for four seasons in the 1990s and showed kids exploring science. That series was based on a Scholastic Books franchise.

The Magic School Bus Rides Again features a theme song sung by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Saturday Night Live cast member Kate McKinnon voices the younger sister of Professor Frizzle, who is voiced by Lily Tomlin. Both share a love of science.

The action takes place at Walkerville School.

In 2013, Netflix acquired exclusive SVOD rights to the original series in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland and Latin America.
