Fraggle Rock gets series revival

Animated classic Fraggle Rock is heading back to series for Apple TV.

The Jim Henson Company recently produced the shorts Fraggle Rock: Rock On!, shot on iPhones, to highlight friendship in the era of social distancing.

The new series will reunite the original characters – Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley, and Uncle Travelling Matt – and feature new songs and adventures.

Deadline reports Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford will executive produce for The Jim Henson Company. Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer of New Regency and long-time Henson collaborator John Tartaglia are also executive producing. Showrunners Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson are attached to executive produce and write.

Dates are yet to be announced.

      Disney only has the Muppets (Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, etc). They don’t own Sesame Street (even though Kermit has made appearances there in the past). They don’t own Dark Crystal (which recently had a prequel series on Netflix), and they don’t own things like Labyrinth (which is getting a new film soon) and Fraggle Rock as seen here. Jim Henson company still has quite a bit of ownership of the things it created.
