Get ready kids and others who enjoy learning with the help of puppets. Sesame Street will soon be back at it’s new home on HBO. PBS has been the home to Sesame Street for ages, but now Sesame Workshop has signed a deal which makes the next five seasons of this show exclusive to HBO. It has now been confirmed that the first Sesame Street season on HBO will air January 16th, 2016. So get the little ones ready.
The 46th season of Sesame Street will air on January 16th, 2016 at 9 am Eastern and Pacific. Viewers will also be able to stream all episodes from the previous five seasons through HBO Go and HBO Now.
Some changes have been made to the format though. On HBO, Sesame Street episodes will only be 30 minutes long instead of a full hour. The show’s opening is also different and there are some changes to some of its most popular characters like the Cookie Monster.
PBS will be able to air the new seasons too, nine months after they have been aired on HBO. So we can expect the 46th season to air on PBS in the fall of 2016. Hopefully it will do well for HBO.
