Apple TV+ also revealed the trailer for the Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock “Night of the Lights” holiday special, premiering globally Friday, November 18.
Jim Henson’s fun-loving and musical Fraggles — Gobo, Red, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and new Fraggle friends — have returned for all-new adventures about the magic that happens when we celebrate and care for our interconnected world.
It’s the Night of the Lights, the most Fraggily holiday of the year, and the Rock is filled with songs and cheer.
When Jamdolin (voiced by Emmy Award nominee Daveed Diggs) encourages Wembley to make a special wish, the Fraggles head out on an adventure to find the brightest light and, maybe, the true meaning of the holiday.
From The Jim Henson Company, the series is executive produced by Lisa Henson, Halle Stanford, John Tartaglia, Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson. Dave Goelz and Karen Prell co-executive produce.
Harvey Mason Jr. serves as the executive music producer. The special is produced by Ritamarie Peruggi.
In addition to Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock, Apple’s partnership with The Jim Henson Company includes Harriet The Spy, the first animated adaptation of the iconic children’s novel; Slumberkins, the mixed-media puppet/2D animation program that premiered November 4th; and the popular Fraggle Rock: Rock On! shorts.
Apple TV+ is also the streaming destination for the original 1980’s Fraggle Rock series, as well as recently-added bonus specials, Down at Fraggle Rock, Doozer Music and Fraggle Songs, all of which are now streaming.
