The Magic School Bus Rides Again in new key art

Netflix and 9 Story Group are reviving the well loved kids educational series later this year with The Magic School Bus Rides Again. Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon is taking on the role of Miss Frizzle as her class goes on wacky and informative adventures. We here at ToonBarn have managed to score the 2017 Licensing Expo key art for the new series that reveals its release window.

We’ve seen concept art for the new series (header), but this is the first time we’ve seen production art.

That’s right, you can expect to see The Magic School Bus Rides Again sometime this fall. According to earlier reports, the show’s first season will consist of 26 episodes and feature CG animation. You can set your queue for the series now.

What do you think of the new design?

The original Magic School Bus cartoon was based on a series of children’s novels by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen that were published by Scholastic. Produced by Nelvana, it aired for four seasons and 52 episodes on PBS Kids between 1994 and 1997. In an interview with the New York Times, Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said the original continues to be a huge hit on the streaming service, staying as their top educational show.
