The Magic School Bus Rides Again is a short-lived animated series that premiered on September 29, 2017 on Netflix and was cancelled on April 13, 2018 for unknown reasons. It was produced with 9 Story Media Group and Scholastic along with Netflix. It consists of half-hour episodes. It is based on the original Magic School Bus book series, and works as a sequel to the 1994 TV series. The original Valerie Frizzle passes over the keys of The Bus to her younger sister Fiona Frizzle.
Ms. Frizzle, now Professor Frizzle, has taken over the role of the producers by answering questions at the end of the episodes. The post-credits scenes also serve to set up the next episode, giving the series a stronger sense of continuity than before.
