BoJack Horseman Returns for More Horsing Around in Season 4 — But Has Anyone Seen the Horse Around?

8 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

BoJack Horseman, arguably the most popular talking-animal comedy on Netflix, returned Friday for its fourth season. And for most of the show’s anthropomorphic ensemble, it was monkey business as usual.

In fact, the only thing separating this premiere from others is… well, it’s distinct lack of BoJack. Just like in the trailer, the show’s titular manimal is completely M.I.A. from the 26-minute season opener, which shows just how much of a mess his friends’ lives are without him around.

7 September 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After rocking the mic in Netflix’s “The Get Down,” Jaden Smith is returning to the streaming giant — in pink-haired, animated form.

Today, Netflix announced “Neo Yokio,” a new original series created by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and featuring a voice cast starring Smith, Susan Sarandon, Jude Law, Tavi Gevinson, Jason Schwartzman, and Desus & Mero. Additional members of the voice cast include: Richard Ayoade, Ike Barinholtz, Steve Buscemi, Alexa Chung, Stephen Fry, Katy Mixon, Annet Mahendru, Kiernan Shipka, Willow Smith, and Amandla Stenberg.

According to a release from Netfilx, “the series is a postmodern collage of homages to classic anime, English literature and modern New York fashion and culture.” Set in the ultra-modern city of Neo Yokio, the show focuses on young Kaz (Smith) as he deals with both teenage heartbreak, the legacy of his demon slayer family, and the danger that might be threatening Neo Yokio.

5 September 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in 1994, Scholastic Productions, Nelvana, and PBS brought the wacky, pro-science show The Magic School Bus to children everywhere. Just as field trips were always the best part of elementary school, Ms. Frizzle's magic-assisted bus rides were the best part of the show (which tricked kids into learning things through entertainment) taking her classroom full of both eager and reluctant students through the human body, outer space, and all sorts of places in between. Now, Netflix's heir apparent to that classic 90s series has been unveiled in a new trailer. Get back on board with … »

Kate McKinnon Shines as the New Ms. Frizzle on Netflix’s ‘The Magic School Bus’ Reboot — Watch the Trailer

5 September 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ah, the mellifluous refrain of Lily Tomlin’s Ms. Frizzle warning: “Strap in, kids. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.” How many lazy afternoons were spent learning about the digestive tract from the inside of an intestine, or flying inside an exhaust pipe to fix a faulty engine and learn what a carburetor is? Now, it’s time for the next generation to surreptitiously learn about science at the urging of an eccentric, frizzy-haired teacher. Netflix released the first trailer for its reboot of “The Magic School Bus,” a beloved and educational kids’ show that ran for four seasons from 1994-1997 on PBS Kids, titled “The Magic School Bus Rides Again.”

Ms. Frizzle, originally voiced by Lily Tomlin, will now be played by Kate McKinnon, rightful heir to all things funny and wacky. The only thing missing in the passing of the baton is Ms. Frizzle’s signature frizzy hair, »

8 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seatbelts, everyone: Kate McKinnon will be your new Ms. Frizzle.

As with many a Netflix revival, “Magic School Bus” resides in the sweet spot of nostalgia-evoking series and children’s programming. Shows like “Fuller House” and the “Gilmore Girls” revival, along with originals like “Stranger Things,” have »
