Upcoming Netflix Releases
Visualize this: You’re sitting in your elementary school classroom, bright eyed and still in awe of the world.
This particular day is special.
Your teacher wheels in a large, bulky television on a stand and starts the video up. You hear the familiar “Beep beep” and a school bus goes bouncing along a cartoon street.
Did that take you back? Great news, then. A new, modernized blast from the past on Netflix will take viewers back on magical, educational science trips. That’s right, Netflix announced that The Magic School Bus will be rebooted, and that Ms. Frizzle has been cast.
Kate McKinnon, comedian from Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters, will be the new Ms. Frizzle. Nothing concrete has been announced beside the show’s existence and McKinnon’s role.
Often, reboots do not meet expectations, but Netflix has proven itself to be a prolific producer of original content, which bodes positively for The Magic School Bus Rides Again.
Along with The Magic School Bus, Netflix has announced a bevy of release dates and new series.
Bill Nye Saves the World, a new series starring Bill Nye the “Science Guy” will premiere on April 21.
Dear White People, a series based on the 2014 movie of the same title, is set to release April 28.
Anne, an adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel series, Anne of Green Gables, premiers on May 12.
Netflix continues to produce acclaimed original content to binge-watch, and plenty of new series to fill one’s nostalgic heart.
