In October 2019, it was announced that Sesame Workshop would enter a five-year deal with the service, producing original content exclusively for the platform. Five new seasons of Sesame Street will make their debut on the service, beginning with Season 51. Additionally, many episodes from the show's archival library, plus The Furchester Hotel, will be included.
Sesame Workshop will also develop new programs for the service, including Sesame spin-offs The Not Too Late Show With Elmo and Mecha Builders, plus animated and documentary series unrelated to the Sesame franchise. Annual Sesame Street specials, beginning with The Monster at the End of This Story, will premiere on the service too.
In a similar agreement to the deal made with HBO in 2015, all original Sesame content produced for the service will air on PBS Kids as well at a later date.
