As summer draws to a close, a healthy dose of Netflix Originals provide plenty of reasons for you to keep coming to the streaming platform.
In September, the wait will finally be over for more Bojack Horseman and Narcos. If you’re hankering for more Stephen King after seeing the new It in theaters, you’ll be able to watch the adaptation of his novel Gerald’s Game on Netflix. And the platform will be adding some interesting new animated titles to their line-up, like comedy Big Mouth, and — shock! — The Magic School Bus Rides Again.
That’s right. The reboot of the ‘90s animated series is almost upon us.
Even if you’re not that curious about what will be different in this new version of The Magic School Bus, though, you’re bound to find something that suits your fancy among the rest of September’s Netflix Originals. Check them out:
