The second season of Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock is going big with special guest voice stars including Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, Home Alone), Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso, Thor: Love and Thunder), Ariana DeBose (Wish), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) and Adam Lambert (American Idol).

If that’s not enough special guests for you, the K-Pop girl group Aespa appears in the show, and the “Get Goin'” official music video has been released.

Nerd Reactor was invited to Jim Henson’s Creature Shop in Los Angeles. John Tartaglia, the voice and puppeteer of Gobo, gave us a tour and talked about how the team brought the Fraggles, Doozers, and Gorgs to life.
