Netflix Bringing Kids's Favorite Bus Driver With 'The Magic School Bus' Reboot

All you Arnold, Wanda and (of course) Valerie Frizzle fans, rejoice: You’ll soon be able to climb back on “The Magic School Bus” again.

Netflix (NFLX, Tech30) is launching a new version of the Emmy-winning 1990s animated children’s series that’s remained wildly popular despite ending its original run more than 15 years ago.

 The new show will be called “The Magic School Bus 360°,” and feature 26 CGI-animated episodes. It’s slated to premiere in 2016 for subscribers’ binge-watching pleasure.

The original show debuted on PBS in 1994. It taught kids science through the adventures of whacky teacher Ms. Frizzle, her inquisitive class and the enchanted bus that took kids everywhere from outer space to inside the human body.

It was big with the coveted millennial demographic in the 90’s, and kids still love the show, which was in syndication until 2012. Chief content officer Ted Sarandos said it’s been a “huge” hit for Netflix, which streams the original shows.
