I grew up watching the Magic School Bus and Ms. Frizzle and now my daughter watches it regularly on Netflix. Well, Scholastics Media has announced a reboot to one of our favorite educational children’s shows. And they have appropriately named it ‘The Magic School Bus 360’.
While this is all exciting, we have a bit of time to wait. Scholastic Media has said the new 26-episode season will not be ready until 2016. Not only are they bringing it back, but they are giving Ms. Frizzle a few updates along the way. With the use of CGI technology, the environments the class travels to will be more details then before, more modern looks for the class and Ms. Frizzle, and a more modern, high-tech bus. The premise will remain the same, with the show being education and fun at the same time, but there will be 21st century examples within technology and robotics. We live in a technology based world now, after all.
We will keep up with this project and let you know everything that is happening and when a release date is finally announced (which may be a while).
