HBO Max is a streaming service launched on May 27, 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 short-form compilation series, My Sesame Street Friends, premiered on the service in November 2020.

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] Warner Media's April 21, 2020 press release announcing the service's debut on May 27 also noted that content from the Sesame Street library would be available at launch ("Highlights of the extensive WarnerMedia portfolio of programming and acquisitions that will be available on day one include the libraries of... Sesame Street"), but did not specify if the extent of coverage would go beyond what HBO On Demand has already made available.[2]

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]

Sesame Street episodes

HBO Max includes a number of Sesame Street episodes in its library, although not all 4,581 of them. Several episodes are new to the format that had not previously been released in a syndication package, physical home media, or distributed digitally.

HBO assigns their own numbers to the episodes, relative to the season they were produced for. These are non-reflective of the original episode numbers which are still shown on screen at the beginning of each episode.

On November 1, 2020, episodes that had been new to the platform at launch in May 2020 were merged with content previously available streaming on HBO (such as the Sesame Street Classics collection). Episode 3136 is incorrectly placed a second time in their season 31 listing. Episode 4085 is also placed a second time in their season 40 listing.
