    The Teletubbies are returning soon to a screen near you. 

    Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, and Po will reunite with the help of narrator Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) this fall. The beloved preschool series first premiered in the United States in 1998 after originating on the BBC a year earlier and ran until 2001. A reboot ran on the BBC's CBeebies and Nick Jr. starting in 2015, but Netflix's iteration will mark the first new Teletubbies tales since the last reboot concluded in 2018.

    Netflix's Teletubbies promises a new "Tummy Tales" song in each episode of this "21st century refresh" as the colorful friends learn and grow. The series joins the ever-expanding slate of children's content set to premiere on the platform this fall, including new seasons of beloved series like Gabby's Dollhouse and Storybots.

    Teletubbies premieres on Netflix November 14.
