Kate McKinnon Will Voice Ms. Frizzle in Netflix’s ‘Magic School Bus’ Reboot

All of my favorite childhood Tv shows are coming back and its pretty lit. ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Kate Mckinnon is set to voice the amazing Ms. Frizzle on Netflix’s reboot of the children’s series. I honestly couldn’t think of a better person to play Ms. Frizzle.


Netflix announced in a press release today that McKinnon will take on the role of Walkerville Elementary School’s favorite third-grade teacher in the reboot, that is now titled “Magic School Bus: Rides Again.” Ms. Frizzle was previously voiced by Lily Tomlin in the original series. Tomlin won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in 1996.

 In 2014, the streaming service ― in partnership with Scholastic Media ― announced it would reboot ‘90s series 20 years after the original debuted on PBS. The year before, Netflix acquired the rights to stream “Magic School Bus” on its platform, where it became one of the most-watched kids program on the site.

 “Magic School Bus,’ the old version, is remarkably popular on Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content office, said at the time of the announcement. “It teaches science in a way that transcends generations.”

“Parents trust it and kids love it,” he added, promising that the reboot will be “even more relevant and entertaining for today’s kids.”

Apparently, the new series will feature a lot of returning favorites from the original series, as well as a handful of celebrity cameos.
