Sesame Street’s 51st season premiered on HBO Max on November 12, 2020, marking the first time the show aired first-run episodes on a video streaming service before being broadcast on television.

Starting this season, episodes premiere on the platform on Thursdays, instead of on Saturdays as with the show's run on HBO. The episodes later premiered on PBS beginning September 6, 2021. The season's main curricular goal is demonstrating playful problem solving, with the recurring use of the mantra "I wonder, what if, let's try!"
