The Magic School Bus is coming back to our screens

Anyone remember The Magic School Bus? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that nearly 20 years after the celebrated children’s show, which first premiered in September 1994, is coming back to the small screen.

The new TV series, will (of course) have a few modern updates, with big celebrity names included in the line-up and new age science for us to get excited about.

However - you can rest assured that the reboot, which will be called the Magic School Bus 360, will still feature original characters from the 90s show which was adapted from the science books written by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen.

For example, Ms Frizzle with her fiery red and curly hair, along with her gang of science lovers and their time travelling yellow school bus will be heading back to town.

But this time the gravity defying bus is expected to come equipped with robotic gadgets to accurately reflect modern technology, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos, told The New York Times.

Many original cast members have also signed onto the project and we can expect to see and hear a few top-secret celebrity cameos scattered throughout the series, producer Stu Stone, who voiced the fictional class athlete and daydreamer Ralphie Tennelli in the original series, said.

He recently told TMZ: "There are tons of cameos planned. I know that there are big stars who want to be involved in this. And there's a whole generation of people who grew up on this series that want to be a part of it now that it's back."

This time round, the show's set at the time when computer science is at the forefront of discovery and, like its earlier episodes, is sure to excite and teach a new generation of little learners.

The Magic School Bus 360, will be showing on Netflix. The exact time and date is yet to be announced.
