She then hires her younger sister, Miss Fiona Frizzle, to teach the class, and passes the keys of the Magic School Bus over to her. The kids journey on exciting new field-trips, discovering new locations, creatures, time periods and more to learn about the wonders of science, educating viewers along the way, on the eponymous Magic School Bus.

The Magic School Bus then shrinks and goes inside the restaurant to the pasta display, which leads to a Western-themed race between Carlos and Mikey, whose success hinges on simple machines.

Specials (2020–2021)

These four 44-minute episodes released throughout the early 2020s as individual specials on Netflix (excluding "Goldstealer"), and onto a Canada-exclusive DVD from production company 9 Story in November 2021 (which includes "Goldstealer"). The tetralogy revives The Magic School Bus Rides Again with the show's transition to 3D CGI animation, fixing the skin tones of characters like Keesha, more fluid animations compared to the previous 2 seasons, and the Bus's new CG models. They are dedicated to the author of The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks, the late Joanna Cole, whose death occurred in 2020.

271"Kids in Space"AstronautsRichard WestonDavid SkellyAugust 7, 2020 (2020-08-07)
Ms. Frizzle and the kids have undergone training procedures and travel to the International Space Station in the Magic School Bus. When Ralphie accidentally uses the Bus' remote control (here referred to as its name from "Butterfly and the Bog Beast", the Porta-Shrinker) to turn a tardigrade into a mutant, water-seeking beast, the kids must find out where to find the Porta-Shrinker (as Ralphie lost it) so it can return to its normal size.
282"The Frizz Connection"Air CurrentsRichard WestonEvan Thaler HickeyOctober 20, 2020 (2020-10-20)
Ms. Frizzle takes the students to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta on the hot-air bus for Arnold's birthday. Along the way, the students are caught in an electric storm. When the Magic School Bus gets hit by lightning, it is cloned into three hot air balloons and Ms. Frizzle is split into three distinct parts reflecting her personality (The Frizz being her humor, Fiona being her bravery, and Ms. Frizzle being her intelligence). The three buses are scattered across the world, each having a different group of three students (Liz included). The groups of students navigate the Frizzle Fragments to Albuquerque and join them together before Ms. Frizzle fades from existence.

Ms. Frizzle has taken the kids to see her cousin, Maven, in concert on New Year's Eve. New Year's Eve is also the day when the Magic School Bus installs a 13GB update for its MagicWare (the software that gives it its magical properties), and it finishes at 12:00. Since the kids were traveling the world, the Bus has been reinstalling its software in every time zone, causing it to glitch and malfunction (the kids transform, shrink, and age while the Bus transforms into different vehicles). This causes Maven to cancel the tour and head to Walkerville. Still, instead of Walkerville, the malfunctioning Bus eventually turns on autopilot and travels to the South Pole, where it glitches once more. When they get to Walkerville, its MagicWare eventually crashes. It reboots when the kids reset its clock to solar time because it is dependent on the time on its internal clock.
304"Goldstealer"Classical Mechanics and Kinematics (specifically speed, velocity, and friction)Richard WestonMike McPhadenNovember 9, 2021 (2021-11-09)
After professional bicyclist Angela Franklin, one of Keesha's two mothers, is framed for stealing the gold medal for the World Wheel Games, a bicycle race that takes place every 3.14 years, the class works together as a group of spies to clear her name. The real gold stealer is revealed to be Franklin's racing rival, Laura Smythe, who did it out of spite after Franklin was given first place the prior race when Smythe was disqualified for cheating. Using what they learned about velocity and speed, and how it is impacted by friction (previously discussed in The Magic School Bus episode, "Plays Ball"), the students make it back to the course in time to prove Franklin's innocence so she can participate and win the race, and have Laura Smythe arrested for her crimes.


On June 10, 2014, the series was first announced by Netflix and Scholastic Media, and was titled The Magic School Bus 360°.[13] The new iteration of the franchise features a modernized "Ms. Frizzle" (replacing Valerie with her younger sister Fiona) and a high-tech bus that stresses modern inventions such as robotics, wearables and camera technology. The hope is to captivate children's imaginations and motivate their interest in the sciences.[14] It was produced by 9 Story Media Group.[15] Producer Stuart Stone, who voiced Ralphie in the original series, stated that The Magic School Bus 360° will feature some of the original voice actors in different roles. The show's voice cast is based in Los Angeles, California, United States and Toronto, Ontario, Canada with Susan Blu as the Los Angeles voice director and Alyson Court as the Toronto voice director.[16] In February 2017, Kate McKinnon was cast in the role of Ms. Frizzle (without clarifying it was Fiona, the younger sister of Valerie, now Professor Frizzle, still voiced by Tomlin). The series then changed its name to The Magic School Bus Rides Again.[17] The series was released on Netflix on September 29, 2017.[2] The second season was released on April 13, 2018.[3]

Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton sings the theme song.[18] Phoebe Terese, a character from the original series, is replaced by a new student named Jyoti, as it was revealed that Phoebe transferred back to her old school.[19][20] The episode endings feature question and answer sessions with Professor Frizzle, echoing the segments about viewers calling the producer which accompanied the original series on commercial-free channels.[21] Despite clarifying some creative license taken in the episode, these scenes are still set in a universe with magical vehicles.[22] Among other changes, the students still wear the same clothes every day but they do not resemble those from the original series.[23] Three 45–minute specials were released in 2020: the first special The Magic School Bus Rides Again: Kids in Space was released on August 7,[24] the second named The Magic School Bus Rides Again: The Frizz Connection on October 20[25] a third titled The Magic School Bus Rides Again: In the Zone on December 26,[26] and a fourth titled The Magic School Bus Rides Again: Goldstealer which came out exclusively on DVD.[9][27] The artstyle was changed for the specials as the characters have no outlines and the lighting and shading are more detailed.

Critical reception

Why has this good-natured show already received an inordinate amount of judgement? How can this much vitriol be thrown at a creation before anyone has even seen it?

— Cody Schmitz, Decider[28]

After the series' announcement and the release of its trailer, there was initial resistance to the new art style, absence of Lily Tomlin as Ms. Frizzle, and fear it would not live up to the original series.[29][30] AOL accused the show of giving Ms. Frizzle a nose job.[31] Bustle put this down to fans of the show being "protective of its legacy".[32]

Despite this speculation, the series has been critically acclaimed upon release. Common Sense Media deemed the show a worthy successor to its 1990s sister series, praising its gender and ethnic diversity and its commitment to teaching children about STEM subjects.[33] Christianity Today argues that the show managed to keep the "genius of the franchise", which is that the children are almost more intrigued by the complexity and order of the natural world rather than the magic of the titular school bus.[34] Daily Dot praised the series' premiere for addressing the change to the show's structure, putting viewers at ease through the transition, adding that the science was made "approachable".[30] The Houstonian found the episodes' scenarios to be "pretty interesting", commenting on the academical and moral lessons.[35] The AV Club felt the series lives up to its predecessor, and contains the same "goofy humor and ease with making learning fun".[36] Another AV Club article wrote that the series is "lively, fast-paced, and exceedingly tolerable for adults", and full of enough science to allow them to park their kids in front of it guilt-free.[37]

Some users on social media have accused the show of whitewashing the black characters.[38][39][40]
