It's time to dance your cares away again as the Fraggles return to Apple TV+ in an all new series on 21st January. Watch the trailer...
Back to the Rock is the highly anticipated reboot of the Jim Henson classic 1980s TV series Fraggle Rock which ran for 96 episodes between 1983 and 1987. All 13 episodes of the new Apple Original series from The Jim Henson Company will debut Friday, January 21st, on Apple TV+, joining the celebrated collection of Apple Original shorts, Fraggle Rock: Rock On!
Jim Henson’s fun-loving and musical Fraggles — Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley, Uncle Travelling Matt — alongside new Fraggles and Doozers voiced by special guests stars Patti LaBelle, Cynthia Erivo, Daveed Diggs, Ed Helms, Kenan Thompson, as well as an appearance by Foo Fighters, kick off the new year by embarking on epic, hilarious adventures about the magic that happens when we celebrate and care for our interconnected world.
Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock is executive produced by The Jim Henson Company’s Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford, and longtime Henson collaborator John Tartaglia. Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson, who serve as showrunners, also executive produce, alongside New Regency’s Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer. Co-executive producers are Dave Goelz and Karen Prell, and executive music producer is Harvey Mason Jr. The series is produced by Ritamarie Peruggi.
In addition to Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock, Apple TV+ is also the streaming destination for the original Fraggle Rock series, as well as recently added bonus specials, Down at Fraggle Rock, Doozer Music and Fraggle Songs, all of which are now streaming.
The only thing that concerns us slightly is whether the new series will keep the iconic theme song from the original. It's not looking likely if the trailer is anything to go by!
