Carol-Llynn Parente, the executive producer of Sesame Street, shared her excitement for the update:

“I am so excited for kids to explore our updated neighborhood and discover where their favorite characters live. Sesame Street has always been the ideal play date for preschoolers; now that play date is focused on topics and themes that are very engaging to kids, with our signature educational messages embedded into laughter and music.”

Sounds like a new format but still the classic show we remember!

The first episode will debut January 16, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. ET — and it sounds like it’ll be a must-watch!!
