'The Magic School Bus' is getting revived on Netflix


"The Magic School Bus" is coming back.

Netflix is reviving the classic kid's science show that debuted in 1994, Good Housekeeping reports. The revival was originally announced in 2014, but it will be soon ready for prime time.

The New York Times reported the show was originally planned to be called "The Magic School Bus 360" (its concept art is shown above). At the time, Netflix had also acquired rights to Scholastic Media series like "Clifford the Big Red Dog" and "Goosebumps."

There's a whole generation of people who grew up on this series that want to be a part of it now that it's back.
