Sesame Street’s 52nd season premiered on HBO Max on November 11, 2021.

Overview

The season continues its two-year curriculum of "playful problem solving," while also acknowledging the show's racial justice curriculum, which began with its Coming Together initiative.[1]

Seven of the episodes were filmed on location, including a five-episode arc filmed at Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard in North Salem, New York.[2][3][4]

Also, joining the cast is Elmo's newly-adopted puppy Tango, who first appeared in a 2021 special. The two star in a new recurring animated segment, "Elmo & Tango's Mysterious Mysteries." Tamir, previously introduced in The Power of We special, is given a recurring role as well (along with his cousin Gabrielle).

Production

Production was complicated due to the COVID-19 pandemic; filming for the season's farm storyline took place at Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard in August 2020 to allow for open-air filming.[3][5] Two additional episodes were filmed on location in Queens and Croton Gorge Park in Westchester.

In-studio production began a few months later, starting the week of October 26[6] and wrapping on December 10.[7]

Celebrities

Celebrity guests for the season include Jon Batiste, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, Dr. Mae Jemison, Kacey Musgraves, Naomi Osaka, Anderson .Paak, and Keke Palmer.
