Apple TV+ Launches ‘Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock’ Season 2

Watch an exclusive clip, ‘A New Look,’ featuring guest star Adam Lambert voicing The Great Glitterini! and get into the 80’s groove! 13 all-new episodes stream today, March 29.

The 80s are back, and it begins now! Today, AppleTV+ launched all 13 episodes of Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock Season 2. Watching this colorful reboot of the classic musical fantasy comedy puppet series Fraggle Rock might trigger flashbacks of bean bag chairs and shag carpet (for viewers of a certain age), but it’s way better than shoulder pads and a lot more fun!

New episodes feature Jim Henson’s fun-loving and musical Fraggles - Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley, and Uncle Travelling Matt, appearing alongside new Fraggles and Doozers voiced by special guest stars including Academy Award winner Ariana DeBose, Emmy Award winner Brett Goldstein, Emmy Award winner Catherine O’Hara, Tony and Grammy Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Daveed Diggs, and Grammy nominee Adam Lambert – all back with more epic, fun and zany adventures, this time with big changes affecting the Rock.

In the new season, the Fraggles, Doozers, and Gorgs must confront their past and celebrate their interdependence as they move through challenges together with hope, silliness, and brand-new songs, all while dancing their cares away... down at Fraggle Rock.
