The animated reboot will feature a modernized Ms. Frizzle and her elementary school class, who use a high-tech bus to explore the wide world of science.

The Magic School Bus revolutionized kids’ television through a unique and powerful blend of entertainment and science information,” Scholastic Media President Deborah Forte said in a statement. “The Magic School Bus 360° is a similarly compelling addition to the current landscape of children’s programming and on Netflix is bound to reach more families around the world than ever before who will now be able to watch the show anytime, anywhere they want.”

The 26-episode series will debut in 2016.

    Any word on whether Lily Tomlin will reprise her role? She IS Miss Frizzle.

    This is not good news for Arnold. He’ll wish he’d stayed home from school.

    OMG This is the best news ever!

    This is great! I hope FETCH WITH RUFF RUFFMAN will be next. That was a fantastic, quality show for 7- to 10-year-olds. After your kid grows out of Nick Jr/Disney Jr, there is NOTHING for them to watch, beyond the Disney tween garbage.

    Oh nostalgia!
