In 2014, the series was first announced by Netflix and Scholastic Media, and was entitled The Magic School Bus 360. The new iteration of the franchise features a modernized Ms. Frizzle 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. It will be produced by 9 Story Media Group. 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. In February 2017, Netflix announced that Kate McKinnon was cast in the role of Fiona Felicity Frizzle, the younger sister of Ms. Frizzle, now Professor Frizzle (voiced once again by Tomlin). The series then changed its name to The Magic School Bus Rides Again. Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame sings the theme song. Phoebe Terese, a character from the original series, is replaced by a new student named Jyoti, as it was revealed that Phoebe moved back to her old school. The series was released on Netflix on September 29, 2017.
