Children’s television staple “Sesame Street” will soon return for its 42nd season and along with the beloved characters, important lessons and educational fare, adults and kids alike can expect to be wowed by the long line of stars set to make special appearances on the show.
According to a recent press release, the celebrity-packed guest star line-up includes Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams, as well as film stars Mila Kunis, Liev Schreiber, Amy Adams, Naomi Watts, James Marsden, Seth Rogen, Jason Schwartzman, and Jerry O’Connell. TV stars include “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara, “The Office’s” John Krasinski, and Joel McHale and Ken Jeong from “Community.” And not to be left out, late-night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and George Lopez will also show up on the “Street.”
And that’s not all. A number of sports figures, musicians and other famous faces from the big and small screens are slated to join the resident Muppets for “Sesame Street” segments.
Of course, despite the star power, the show isn’t really about glitz and glam. Parents may be just as excited to learn that the focus for the upcoming season is a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum.
The season premiere of “Sesame Street” airs Sept. 26 on PBS.
