This article is about an upcoming project, product, or production.

HBO Max is a streaming service planned to launch in May 2020 from WarnerMedia Entertainment.

In October 2019, Sesame Workshop announced that it 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.[1]

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 as well.[1]

The deal also includes legacy content including The Furchester Hotel and "a broad collection of Sesame Street episodes selected from the past 50 years – many available to the public on-demand for the first time ever."[1]

In a similar agreement to the deal made with HBO in 2015, all original Sesame content produced for the service will air on PBS as well at a later date.[1]
