A Reboot of Jim Henson’s ‘Fraggle Rock’ is Coming to Apple

Apple is bringing back Fraggle Rock.

Variety has learned that the tech giant’s streaming service has ordered a new iteration of the classic Jim Henson series titled Fraggle Rock: Rock On! Each episode will be three to five minutes long. New episodes will premiere for free globally every Tuesday.

 

 

The show will bring back classic characters like Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley, and Uncle Traveling Matt. While the Fraggles might be in different parts of the Fraggle Rock caves, they can still find ways to have fun together, with music, silliness, special guests, and of course the help of devices created by the industrious Doozers called the Doozertubes. In the first episode entitled “Shine On,” new Doozertubes are delivered to the Fraggles’ caves, allowing them to come together for a favorite song “Shine On, Shine On Me.”

The all-new short form episodes are produced by The Jim Henson Company, and executive produced by Halle Stanford and John Tartaglia. In accordance with the current social distancing guidelines, Fraggle Rock: Rock On! is all shot on iPhone 11s from the homes of the production team and individual artists from all over the U.S.
