PBS KIDS announced new episodes and a special of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” beginning August 17.

The new season of the show kicks off with “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Won’t You Sing Along with Me?,” a music-filled special that helps address some of the challenges and disappointments “little tigers” and their families may be experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“As COVID-19 continues to pose challenges to families across the country, PBS Kids is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of children, parents and caregivers,” says Lesli Rotenberg, chief programming executive and general manager, children’s media and education, PBS. “Learning lies at the heart of our mission, and we’ve been proud to be able to step in and offer at-home learning solutions, content and resources, like this timely special from ‘Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’ that reach kids where they are with age-appropriate lessons – especially in areas where families may have limited or no access to broadband internet.”

In addition to the debut title, five new episodes including a 22-minute special, “Daniel’s Substitute Teacher,” will premiere throughout the week. A new digital game from “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” will be available later this summer on and the PBS Kids Games app.
