Actors(and fiancés) Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were ready to get down and dirty when they joined the cavalcade of stars lined up to film Sesame Street segments for the show’s 43rd season. After a short hiatus, the season resumed this week and the soon-to-be parents’ separate segments will air Thursday, Feb. 7 (Bell) and Friday, Feb. 8 (Shepard) as they take on the words “splatter” and “amplify,” respectively.

There are plenty more stars on the way with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Matt Kemp, Paula Patton, Donald Glover, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bobby Moynihan yet to come, along with more spoofs and more STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) work from the award-winning preschool series.
In addition to all of that, Sesame Street’s new Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce initiative (which isn’t part of the on-air programming) is in full gear with a mobile app and an online toolkit with resources for parents, children, caregivers, friends and extended family.
