Sesame Street’s latest season marks the beginning of a two-year curriculum focused on playful problem-solving, designed to build critical thinking skills in young children and better equip them to handle challenges in school and beyond. As Sesame Street Muppets, human cast members, and guest stars alike face obstacles – while building a castle, staging a circus, fixing the inner workings of a grandfather clock, and more – they approach these problems with curiosity, creativity, and perseverance, together using phrases and corresponding gestures as starting points in finding solutions: I wonder…? (pointer finger to temple); What if…? (pointer finger to chin); and Let’s try! (pointer finger in the air).
A new anthem – “I Wonder, What If, Let’s Try” – performed by celebrity guest Hailee Steinfeld, brings this curriculum to life and makes its season debut on Thursday, 26 November. The anthem will appear in Sesame Street episodes throughout the year.
Additional celebrity guests this season include Maggie Rogers (Thursday, 19 November), Issa Rae (Thursday, 10 December), Stephen and Ayesha Curry (Thursday, 25 March), Billy Porter (Thursday, 1 April), and Kelsea Ballerini (Thursday, 17 June), taking part in Street Stories and other segments throughout the season.
