Apple TV Acquires Fraggle Rock Catalog and Confirms Reboot Coming

Apple TV+ has confirmed its new season order and purchase of rights to the full back catalog of Fraggle Rock, the live action puppet show originally owned by HBO.



9to5Mac reports the newly-acquired Fraggle Rock episodes will start streaming on Apple TV+ as soon as this week. The news comes on the heels of Bloomberg reporting that Apple was buying up a back catalog of content to support its previously “all originals” streaming service.


However, Apple’s programming strategy reportedly remains largely unchanged from the all originals premise. Apple is supposedly not looking to buy up reams of content, and is only making select deals where it makes sense — like getting the back catalog of a show when they order a reboot.
