"HELPSTERS" SEASON TWO RETURNS WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES FRIDAY, MARCH 5 ON APPLE TV+
New Episodes of Parents' Choice Gold Medal and Common Sense Media Award-Winning Preschool Series To Feature Celebrity And Musical Guests Including Judah Friedlander, Indya Moore, Alysia Reiner, Michael Torpey, Protoje, The Mowgli's, Ne-Yo And More
Today, Apple TV+ released first-look assets from season two of the award-winning children's series "Helpsters," returning with six all-new episodes on Friday, March 5.
"Helpsters" is a live-action pre-school series from the makers of "Sesame Street," encouraging children to explore the power of teamwork as puppets Cody, Scatter, Mr. Primm and Heart join a cadre of new celebrities to solve problems, including Black Lady Sketch Show's Robin Thede, 30 Rock star Judah Friedlander, Garfunkel & Oates' Kate Micucci, Indya Moore of FX's Pose, as well as musical guests including Protoje, The Mowgli's and Ne-Yo and more. In this fun & fuzzy series, the Helpsters approach any challenge - from babysitting a lizard, to hiding successfully while playing "hide & seek," to opening a park-- with a can-do attitude, because everything starts with a plan.
The recipient of a Parents' Choice Gold Medal Award and Common Sense Media Award, "Helpsters" has been recognized as "immersive, educational, and entertaining." The series teaches young viewers important lessons in pre-coding skills and inspires self-confidence, collaboration, effective communication and much more. Emmy Award winner and Parents' Choice Gold Medal winner Tim McKeon ("Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Destination Imagination," "Odd Squad") is the creator and showrunner of "Helpsters." He and Sesame Workshop's executive vice president of Creative and Production Kay Wilson Stallings are executive producers. The series has also scored a season three renewal.
Apple TV+ is home to original series from some of today's most trusted franchises in kids and family programming, including the Daytime Emmy Award-winning "Ghostwriter" and "Helpsters" from Sesame Workshop; as well as upcoming series "Fraggle Rock" from The Jim Henson Company; "Doug Unplugs" from DreamWorks Animation; "Stillwater" from Gaumont and Scholastic; and a newly imagined original series based on the stories and illustrations of Maurice Sendak.
