Sesame Street
Long-running children’s series “Sesame Street” will undergo a major creative retooling in its 56th season to debut in 2025. It marks the most significant change for the show since 2016 when the show went from an hour to a half-hour series.

The program will drop the ‘magazine’-style format it has long used and change to two eleven-minute, more narrative-driven story segments. A new animated series, “Tales From 123,” will be sandwiched in between them. [Source: THR]
