Helpsters officially returns to Apple TV+ this October for Season 2.
The kids’ series explores the power of teamwork as puppets Cody, Scatter, Mr Primm and Heart join a cadre of new celebrity and musical guests to solve problems. The Helpsters approach any challenge – from party-planning to magic trick mastery, and even mountain-climbing – with a can-do attitude, because everything starts with a plan.
Season 1 of the show won a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Award and Common Sense Media Award, as well as an Emmy. The series teaches young viewers important lessons in pre-coding skills and inspires self-confidence, collaboration, effective communication and much more.
No, it’s coming back to Apple TV+, hot on the heels of the sophomore run of Ghostwriters. In Season 2 the preschoolers continue to team up with the puppets, with featured guest stars including Terry Crews, Danny Trejo, Gabby Douglas, Christopher Meloni, Richard Kind, Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Buteau and Judah Friedlander, with musical guests including Talib Kweli, Matt Berninger, Jason Mraz, K Flay, Norah Jones and Ingrid Michaelson.
Tim McKeon (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends: Destination Imagination, Odd Squad) is the creator and showrunner. He and Sesame Workshop’s executive vice president of Creative and Production Kay Wilson Stallings are executive producers.
Season 2 of Helpsters premieres on Friday 16th October.
A subscription to Apple TV+ costs £4.99 a month.
