Street Season 48
Sesame Street's 48th season
officially began Monday August 6 on PBS. After you see the new episodes,
post here and let us know your thoughts.
Discussion in 'Sesame Street' started by Pig's Laundry, Nov 4, 2016.
How do you know?
They never have. They have their own agendas and plans on what to upload and when.
Wait, are you saying that Sesame is pushing its agenda down our throats?!
What does Pig's Laundry mean by no clips though?
Press Release about the new season.
I didn't know Lucy Liu was still working.
Oh yeah, she's on that American version of Sherlock Holmes "Elementary".
Huh, so I guess we are getting more than one episode of the season this year. I wonder if this'll be a regular thing, having two seasons premiere in one year. If so, that would remedy the issue some on the forum mentioned about season 49 airing during the 50th anniversary year.
Other press releases are saying weekly episodes follow the "Magical Wand Special." So, yeah, the season'll start next month and go through the Spring. If they keep this trend, we'll see the 50th season in time for the 50th anniversary.
Wait, since the season's starting next month, should we change the name of the thread?
Tons of new info for the season, including episodes about The Count, Prairie Dawn, Ernie and Bert, and the Martians. Plus Baby Bear gets a major role:
I thought the new season was premiering next year.
Yes, it's done.
Wow. So the new season is premiering early then?
I guess that's a good thing so they can reach to Season 50 quicker in alignment with their 50th year.
I'm assuming that the PBS premiere will be next year.
Press kit is fully live:
So I guess the big deal about scaling back on celebrities was all hearsay and conjecture, because it seems like SST has made no effort at all to carry that out. Either way, now I'm more curious than ever to see what Kate McKinnon will be doing.
And I guess it's safe to assume that we do still have Segi on the show in spite of Joey's departure . . . or, it says "New friends around the corner," so is it just the Segi puppet recycled for a new character?
Who is the celebrity on the right with Elmo?
On the front page, from left to right, the guest stars are Alessia Cara, John Legend, and Kate McKinnon.
Yep, it looks like they're continuing the tradition of SNL cast members playing Mother Goose.
Meanwhile, they've added Rudy to their list of main Muppets.
EDIT: Looks like that girl with Prairie isn't Segi, but a girl named Gabriella.
Separate names with a comma.
