Issa Rae makes a royal appearance in the latest episode of Sesame Street. In the episode, titled “I Wonder, What If, Let’s Try”, the Insecure star plays a queen who needs the muppet’s help with solving a problem.
“The queen looks sad,” Elmo said in the teaser clip.
“I am sad,” Issa responded. ” I only have two bricks.”
Elmo replied, “Why does the queen need bricks?”
“To build a play castle for my daughter, the princess,” Issa said.
Together, her Elmo, Rosita, and Cookie Monster repurposed the cardboard they had planned to recycle into a beautiful castle for the muppet princess, who is also voiced by Issa.
Check out the teaser clip below. The 51st season of Sesame Street is streaming now on HBO Max, the PBS KIDS Video App, local PBS TV stations, or the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel.
