Brighter, Shorter "Sesame Street" Debuts in January on HBO

A new Latina character, different sets, shorter episodes and an updated theme song are coming to "Sesame Street" at its new home on cable channel HBO in January. 

HBO and show producers said on Tuesday that Muppets Elmo, Cookie Monster and Big Bird will be joined by real-life character Nina - a young, bilingual Latina who works at the laundromat and bike store - when the educational series arrives at its new home on January 16th.

Episodes will be cut by half to 30 minutes, the set has been "reimagined" and the theme song has been given a "new upbeat update," they said in a statement. 

"Families will see fun and fresh changes to "Sesame Street" and can depend on their favourite Muppet friends to provide them with engaging and educational content,” said Brown Johnson, creative director of Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind the 45-year-old show. 

HBO and Sesame Workshop announced in August that they had struck a five-year partnership that will make new seasons of "Sesame Street" available first on HBO and its on-demand and mobile services. 

"Sesame Street" had previously been broadcast in the United States on publicly funded PBS, which is free of charge to TV viewers. Under the deal, new episodes of the show will run on PBS starting in the fall of 2016. 

In the new season, Big Bird has a new nest, Cookie Monster has moved above Hooper's Store, and Elmo has moved into the 123 Sesame Street brownstone house. The series is known as much for its celebrity cameos as its regular characters and the new season will see appearances by singers Gwen Stefani, Pharrell, Nick Jonas and Sara Bareilles.
