#SesameTakesLA

Sesame Street's 47th season debuted on January 7, 2017 on HBO, and September 18 on PBS.

Overview

The season continues the previous season's curriculum of "kindness," reflected in several street stories and a new "Kindness Cam" segment, where Elmo replays a clip from the show and kids act out the kindness element.

"Elmo's World" returns with 26, all-new episodes. Each five-minute segment features Elmo in a newly designed "world," still accompanied by Mr. Noodle (played once again by Bill Irwin) and his family, and Dorothy, but joined by Smartie, an animated smartphone.

The season introduces new Muppet character Julia into the cast, created to help increase awareness of those with Autism. Julia, having been previously introduced in illustrated / animated form in We're Amazing, 1, 2, 3!, appears in two episodes this season. The season also introduces new character Rudy, Abby's new stepbrother.

The season also introduces new dance breaks for the letter and number of the day, starring Abby and Cookie Monster (respectively).

Production

The season began production in late 2015, with initial filming taking place during the week of December 14.[1] Filming of celebrity inserts took place in Los Angeles during the week of March 1, 2016.[2] Major filming for the season began the week of March 14, 2016[1] and ended the week of April 25.[3]

Episodes

Episodes 4701 - 4735 (35 episodes)

Guest stars

Celebrity guests include James Corden, Jason Derulo, Tori Kelly (performing "Try a Little Kindness"), Anthony Mackie, Sia (performing "Song About Songs"), Little Big Town and Zachary Levi.

Bill Irwin returns to play Mr. Noodle, joined by Daveed Diggs and Daniel Koren as his brothers.

Among the segments filmed were clips of various celebrities (including Corden, Derulo, Kelly, Mackie and Sia) singing the classic Sesame Street song "Rubber Duckie" with Ernie and his rubber duck on a set filled with floating bubbles.[4]
