Netflix is already working on an animated revival of the beloved show, which also includes a book series.

Fans are pushing for Ross to play the interesting, fun, lively Ms. Frizzle, who drives the school bus from reality to science dreamland.

On Twitter, Josh Gwynn suggested the idea, and several users retweeted it in support. Fans responded with fan art, reactions and their preference for Duvernay and Rae’s involvement.

Ross noticed the hype and responded to the proposal with curiosity.

Users became more excited as her tweet collected over 22,000 retweets and almost 70,000 likes, with over 800 replies.
