Sesame Street, the beloved children’s television show, is about to undergo a major renovation as it gears up for its 56th season in 2025. The show, known for its educational and entertaining content, will be changing its format from a “magazine” style to two longer, more narrative-driven segments.
The new format will feature two 11-minute story segments, allowing for more “dynamic” and “sophisticated” stories that include A and B storylines. In between these segments, viewers will be treated to a new animated series called Tales From 123, which will take them on a journey through a new part of Sesame Street called 123 Sesame Street.
This transformation marks the most significant changes for Sesame Street since 2016 when the show went from a one-hour program to 30 minutes. But the updates don’t end there. The show will now include a signature song in every episode, adding a catchy musical element that kids are sure to love. Additionally, Muppet characters will address the camera, creating a more interactive experience for viewers.
The new look for Sesame Street is the result of collaborative efforts between internal and external creative talent. The project has been in the works for quite some time, ensuring that the changes align with the show’s mission of staying relevant and meeting the evolving interests and educational needs of children.
Sesame Workshop, the organization behind Sesame Street, also aims to continue expanding beyond the flagship show. They have been producing content for various platforms and developing corporate partnerships to reach children across different mediums.
While the show undergoes its renovation, fear not. Sesame Street has a large library of episodes that will still be available for viewers to enjoy, even as new episodes air. This means that fans can continue to watch their favorite characters and learn valuable lessons whenever they like.
The upcoming changes to Sesame Street will coincide with the beginning of its next rights deal, adding even more excitement to the new season. With its trusted and beloved brand, Sesame Street has consistently received high ratings in categories like “Trust,” “Quality,” “Fun,” and “Dependable.”
Overall, the future of Sesame Street looks promising, as it embraces innovation and continues to captivate and educate young minds.
