Sesame Street on HBO: See the First Trailer and New Poster for Season 46

The following Sesame Street trailer is brought to you by the letters H, B and O. (I know I didn’t make that joke up, but come on, we all know kids love repetition.)

HBO on Thursday released a splashy new teaser for the show’s upcoming 46th season — its first on premium cable — featuring Cookie Monster, Elmo and more of your favorite felt-skinned friends.

The new batch of episodes, as previously reported, will run a “dynamic” 30 minutes (versus an hour), beginning with a double pump on Jan. 16 (starting at 9 am ET). From there on, a new original will air every Saturday at 9, followed by a repeat.

New episodes will premiere on HBO (and en Español on HBO Latino), then become available to PBS next fall. Additionally, five years’ worth of “library episodes” can be streamed via HBO Now and HBO Go.

HBO also unveiled the show’s official post-move poster, which you can enjoy in full below:

    Since its 30 minutes now, will they finally cut time off Elmo’s world and drop all the CGI stuff (i.e. Bert and Ernie adventures and Abby’s Wizard school) and more live people interacting with Muppets? I grew up with Sesame St and when I had children of my own I was disappointed how lazy the shows were. Kids refused to watch it and now have grown past it. Hope HBO can bring back some of the magic I remember to the next generation. Until then its YouTube videos of “old school” which my kids did like.
