Season two of Ahlan Simsim started airing across Middle East from Sunday 30 August on MBC3 which will also be available via YouTube and local broadcasters in the region. The new service is being launched in the KSA, the UAE, and Egypt. Ahlan Simsim episodes will also be available on Roya TV and Jordan TV in Jordan, Nour Sat and Tele Liban in Lebanon, Al Sumaria in Iraq, and NRT 3 in the Kurdish Region of Iraq.
“We know how important it is to establish a foundation to help overcome challenges and build resilience from a young age, and the new season of Ahlan Simsim is designed to give children the skills they need to succeed in school and life, all with a little help from Basma, Jad, and friends,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Social Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.
“We designed Season two to reflect the realities that young children and families are experiencing today, with new virtual playdates and storylines with strategies and activities that families can do together at home,” said Khaled Haddad, Executive Producer of Ahlan Simsim. “Just when we need them more than ever, the Muppets of Ahlan Simsim are back to bring early education, comfort, and joy to children across the region.”
Ahlan Simsim is tailored to meet the educational needs of young children while celebrating the rich diversity of the MENA region.
