If your child loves Sesame Street as much as my toddler, you will rejoice when I tell you this girl. If you haven't noticed already, Sesame Street has been airing the same like 4 or 5 episodes from the same season for the past two months or so. Plus, they've taken the show off of On Demand and Netflix.

Okay---let me tell you why I've been so annoyed by this and I cannot wait until January 16th. My son is ALWAYS asking me to watch Sesame Street or Seshastree as he would say. So I am tired of watching the same episodes over and over and over with him.

The reason for all this mishap is because Sesame Street will be moving to HBO on January 16th with a brand new season(*screams yayyyy in my best Elmo voice*).

Sesame Street has been airing on PBS for the past 40 years (so if you're not a mom and you're reading this, don't act like you don't know about Sesame Street).

Unfortunately, PBS doesn't have the funds to keep producing the show. So HBO is taking over, babies! The beloved show will have new sets, shorter episodes, and even a new theme song. All the episodes from the past 45 seasons will be available to watch as well!

Celebrities making appearances on the new season of Sesame Street include Gwen Stefani, Pharrell, Nick Jonas, Sara Bareilles, Fifth Harmony, Ne-Yo, Alan Cumming, Gina Rodriguez, Aloe Blacc, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Check out the trailer for Sesame Street's upcoming 46th season!
