Fraggle Rock returning to HBO
Fraggle Rock, Jim Henson’s beloved Muppet vehicle, is headed back to HBO in HD, EW has confirmed.
The show originally debuted on HBO in 1983, and lasted five seasons and 96 episodes. It will make its digitally remastered return to the network later this year.
“In remastering the series, illuminate has created a contemporary look for the series with meticulous attention paid to every detail — sharpening the images, cleaning up the contrast, increasing the vibrancy of the colors and re-formatting for wide-screen — all under the careful supervision of Brian Henson,” Richard Goldsmith, EVP of Global Distribution for The Jim Henson Company said in a statement. “We’ll engage a whole new audience who will love meeting the Fraggles, Gorgs, and Doozers.”
Fraggle Rock‘s return is set to come in late 2016.
