Fraggle Rock to be revived by Apple TV+ after 33 years

It's time to stream your cares away, and leave your lockdown worries for another day...

Because classic children's show Fraggle Rock is to be revived by Apple TV+, 33 years after the last series was made.

Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley and Uncle Travelling Matt will reunite for more songs and adventures, to be co-produced by The Jim Henson Company.

As well as the new series, every existing episode of the puppet show has just landed on Apple TV+.

It's first time Apple TV+ has offered previously produced content.

The Emmy-winning Fraggle Rock was devised by late Muppets creator Henson, and first appeared on TV in 1983. It ran for five series, ending in 1987.
