So, if all the fun stuff going on to celebrate Sesame Street‘s 50th anniversary wasn’t cool enough, there’s a big addition to season 50: for the first time in over two decades, there’s a new kid on the Street.

Violet Tinnirello plays 8 year-old Charlotte, better known to her friends as Charlie. Charlie has moved to Sesame Street after her parents decided to retire from the military. According to Sesame Workshop, “Charlie is outgoing and eager to make new friends; she can’t wait to meet all the birds, monsters, letters, numbers, animals, and people Sesame Street has to offer. In her debut episode, Elmo and Rosita welcome her to the block, introducing her to Big Bird, Snuffy, and the rest of the gang. She soon realizes that she’s on a street like no other! Charlie joins in lots of adventures throughout her debut season – inventing a new game, catching a fireworks show, and even going on a treasure hunt through Sesame Street’s history.”

Charlie will appear in six episodes throughout season 50:

Episode 5013 – A New Neighbor on Sesame Street

Episode 5014 – Drawing Day

Episode 5023 – Zoe Breaks Her Arm

Episode 5025 – A Very Special Fiesta

Episode 5029 – The Treasure of Yucky Mama

Episode 5034 – The Fourth of July

Charlie’s first appearance is currently scheduled to air on February 8th, 2020 on HBO.
