The New York Times is reporting that new episodes of Sesame Street are going to be airing on HBO first, followed by edited version released to PBS later on for the next five seasons.

This should allow for fully exploring Bert and Ernie’s new now-legally recognized relationship in detail, and what really makes Abby’s Flying Fairy School fly.

The Word on the Street will probably now include expletives.

Elmo is expected to address his constant nudity and the death of his parents in the 2016 season.
