No Season 3 for the kids variety series.
August 18, 2022
Reports are out that The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo has been cancelled by HBO Max after two seasons. The news comes eight months after the preschool variety series wrapped its sophomore run. The show is set to be removed from the streaming service sometime this week.
Hosted by everyone's favorite 3½-year-old furry red monster, Elmo, the show features interviews with celebrity guests, plenty of zany games, and fun sing-alongs. Joining Elmo is his co-host, Cookie Monster, along with the rest of the Sesame Street Muppets as the cast and crew.
Kevin Clash has not been Elmo’s performer for nearly 10 years so he has literally ZERO to do with the show being cancelled. It was cancelled (and removed) during the WB/Discovery purge.
It is incredibly strange that you would cite the ANCIENT and since DROPPED allegations against Kevin Clash as the reason for cancellation/removal when the WB/Discovery Content Purge is not only RECENT (and ongoing) news that has been plastered everywhere but is also MUCH bigger news than the allegations against Kevin Clash ever was.
Second, Kevin Clash was found not-guilty and any/all charges dropped. He willingly resigned from Sesame Workshop and stepped down from the role of Elmo (before HBO had even started airing their newly purchased/produced episodes) and any/all performances Clash HAD pre-recorded were not re-dubbed, with credits well into the following year. He STILL to this day works with the Henson company and was featured in Brian’s NSFW film with Melissa McCarthy, performed several characters in Netflix’ The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, was prominently featured in the Barretta Brothers “Dinosaurs” reunion and continues to perform as-needed.
Check your facts and timing before you post nonsense.
