Netflix’s New “Magic School Bus” Trailer Will Take You Right Back to Your Childhood
With September in full swing, the fall 2017 TV season is getting underway too, bringing a whole slate of new shows, including the Netflix reboot of the kids’ classic The Magic School Bus. This time, SNL and Ghostbusters breakout star Kate McKinnon is in the driver’s seat, taking the keys from her sister, Ms. Frizzle (the first).
With just a few weeks to go before the series debuts, Netflix dropped the trailer for The Magic School Bus Rides Again, featuring OG Frizzle (Lily Tomlin), newly minted teacher Fiona Felicity Frizzle (McKinnon), and an updated theme song by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

As in the original series, the reboot shows Ms. Frizzle taking a group of Walkerville Elementary students on extreme educational field trips. From the looks of the trailer, they journey inside of a volcano, down to the deepest depths of the sea, and out to space. “I’m pretty sure this wasn’t on my permission slips,” one kid says as he floats down from the sky on a snowflake.
Miranda’s version of the iconic theme song is the perfect accompaniment to the adventures the kids will be having this season, which look just as wacky as ever.
With an official release date of September 29, The Magic School Bus Rides Again will be a fun introduction to the world of Ms. Frizzle for your littles or a perfect bit of Saturday morning nostalgia for you. Either way, while we wait for word on a fan-inspired Tracee Ellis Ross live-action version, this reboot will have to keep us satisfied for now.
