On May 26, 2020, following the success of the Fraggle Rock: Rock On! shorts, Apple TV+ announced that it had signed a deal with the Henson Company to produce a full-fledged reboot of Fraggle Rock, consisting of half-hour episodes, in addition to exclusive streaming rights to the original series and specials.[2]

Pre-production on the series began in fall 2020 under the working title Raphanis (derived from the Latin word for "radish"). Filming for the first season commenced on January 25, 2021, in-studio at the Calgary Film Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada[3][4] and wrapped in June.[5]

On December 12, 2022, it was officially announced that the series had been renewed for a second season, with production having already been underway in Calgary since October.[6] Guests announced for the season include Daveed Diggs, Ariana DeBose, Brett Goldstein, and Catherine O'Hara. Production concluded on February 17, 2023.[7]
