Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock is a highly anticipated reboot of the iconic 1980s Fraggle Rock series coming to Apple TV+.

The legendary Jim Henson created the colorful puppet show, which was a global hit during the 1980s, and it still remains a firm favorite with audiences today.

The series focuses on the four main species of character: the Fraggles, Doozers, Gorgs and Silly Creatures, but mainly features the five Fraggles, Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, and Wembley as they go on their adventures.

Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock will bring a sense of nostalgia to our screens as we see the fun and musical-loving Fraggles, as well as new Fraggle friends embark on some exciting adventures.
